Medicaid is a government health insurance program that will pay for long-term care. Since Medicare does not pay for living assistance, this program is relied upon by many seniors who need help with their day-to-day needs. There is an asset limit of $2000 for an individual, but many things that you own do not count. You could potentially give countable assets to your family members before you apply for Medicaid.
