What do we do when she/he runs out of money?
In this case, your loved one may be eligible for Medicaid. Unlike Medicare, Medicaid will pay all expenses for skilled nursing home care indefinitely for qualified persons (though their monthly income, less for personal items, must be paid to the nursing home; Medicaid pays the difference between the person’s income and the total bill each month.) The loved one must be in a Medicaid certified Vendor bed. The Medicaid Program is administered by the Missouri State Family Support Division (FSD.)
