My mother is in a private pay asst. living in MN. She has cash only in a revocable living trust that has a FEIN & she has surrendered the assets to the trustee. I have been told the trust assets will not be countable by the VA A&A but will be countable by Medicaid. Is this true? if true is a good plan to leave funds where they are & continue to pay the additonal expenses out of the trust or an individual acct. & when if medicaid is needed to implement a "half-a-loaf" plan? thank you.
