    for Medicaid.  

    Anyone considering a "RM" had best check out what, if any options they have for long-term care under Medicaid, if they were to get involved in a "reverse mortgage."

    I don't know the ramifications, first hand.  

    But anything to do with Medicaid long-term care can be a very sticky situation, from what I've gleaned from some folks.

      as a line of credit, that line of untapped credit is not considered, by Medicaid, to be an asset.
      If the person takes a monthly payment, spends some of it and banks the rest, those savings will be regarded as assets.

      The next time I see some pundit claim that John Roberts is a moderate who wants to preserve the SCOTUS' legitimacy in the eyes of the public I am going to freaking scream.
