Medicaid and Ethical Behavior
To qualify for Medicaid, a disabled person can have no more than $2,000 in assets. This means that most people would have to spend all of their own resources BEFORE they could apply for Medicaid. A way around this is to set up a special needs trust, which then allows the assets to supplement Medicaid.
Although this is legal, I don't think it is ethical. I'm curious to know what my readers think.
