Questions & Answers

My husband is in a nursing home and is on Medicaid. All his income is going to the nursing home except for a small sum to pay for his portion of health insurance and for personal needs. I have a pension and Social Security of my own and my assets are less than the $115,000 resource allowance at the time he applied for Medicaid.  My question is: If I have more income and lower expenses, can I save the surplus monies in a savings account even if I eventually have more than $115,000?
