Will I lose my home if I have to go on Medi-Cal for nursing home care?

Good news!

If you plan properly, then no. During your life, your home is exempt and the state will only try to recoup the money it spent on nursing home care after you have passed away (and if you’re married, until your spouse has passed away). But if you do proper planning, you can protect your home from Medi-Cal estate recovery.

For more information, see our “MediCal FAQs,” to the left.
