Will the government or state take my house if I go into a nursing home?

View More FAQ Videos


In Florida, one asset that you have that is completely exempt is your residence. Once you go into a nursing home, you’re allowed to continue to claim that as your residence and even if you die, they don’t make any claim to your residence at all. It could pass to your family or your children without any Medicaid claim whatsoever.
