I know this is an old thread, but I have been looking for the guidelines for FL for a medicaid nursing home for my husband. We really don't have income except for SSD, but we do own a home and I don't want them to come get it or make me sell. I haven't worked in years and I wouldn't be able to afford a place to live. The only thing I was told was that I would be able to keep his SS except for $35-40 which he would get. I am a little worried about the house, because if they can claim it I would probably be better off selling and paying someone myself. I hope that makes sense.
