Medicaid: How To Plan Ahead For Long Term Care Coverage

Move Out Yourself

Next » « Previous


If you are not married, one way to avoid having another person's income and/or assets counted with yours is for you to move out and go stay with a friend or relative. Of course this is not a step to be undertaken lightly.

As a general matter, all that is necessary to prove your address is an envelope addressed to you at that address.

If you do move out, a reputable patient navigator in New York suggests that if you stay with someone else, name that person as "Head of Household."  Otherwise, moving out can complicate things.

You can eventually move back if and when the need for Medicaid is resolved.

CAUTION: Saying you moved out when you haven't actually moved out can have serious repurcussions.
