Asset Spend Down: Community Spouse


What is a community spouse?

A community spouse is a spouse of an institutionalized person who resides in the community (as opposed to also being institutionalized). If the spouse lives at home, with a child, in a personal care residence or an assisted living facility, they are still a community spouse. Medicaid rules are geared toward protecting the community spouse. This video offers insight into Medicaid eligibility requirements for married applicants and discusses planning with irrevocable trusts and spousal support trusts.
