that he owns, a term life policy for $30,000. I am the daughter and I am the beneficiary. This money was for his burial and other outstanding bills when the time comes. Question: Will medicaid take the WHOLE amt. or does medicaid allow some money towards a burial? By the way, NO plans were written or ANYTHING, I guess my father thought he would live forever. I am not being sarcastic, but I am a nervous wreck over this! I have another Question: Since I am the primary beneficiary and not my mother, does medicaid take it anyway??? I understand they need money for the care, but when thats all you have to bury a person, will they at least give you back half?? Funerals are not $500 anymore like they used to be. Thank you!
