Full Answer

Most people who enter nursing homes start off by paying the costs themselves. Medicare does not typically cover extended stays in nursing homes and neither do many health insurance policies. As residents use up assets such as bank accounts and stock portfolios, Medicaid sometimes begins covering services. However, certain nursing homes do not take Medicaid benefits. Even with Medicaid, some residents are still responsible for part of the cost.

    How long does it take to sell a home?
