Can we rent Mom's house while she's in a nursing home without it affecting her Medicaid?
Is it possible to rent out my mother's home, if she is in a nursing home, receiving Medicaid?
Your mother's home can be rented without jeopardizing her Medicaid eligibility, however the net rent will need to be applied toward her nursing home costs and will increase her Patient Pay Amount. Expenses incurred as a part of renting the property including management fees may be deducted from the gross rents to arrive at the amount that will need to be applied toward her care.
