Can the nursing home kick me out if I run out of money?

If the nursing home takes Medicaid reimbursement they can't kick you out.  This is true even if they don't have a "Medicaid bed" available.  Only a minority of nursing homes refuse to take Medicaid, so in most cases, you will be able to stay in the same semi-private room you had when you were paying with your own money.  If you were in a private room they will move you to a semi-private room when you go on Medicaid, unless your family is able to pay the difference in cost, but you won't be out on the street.  Because it is possible that the nursing home you select doesn't take Medicaid reimbursement, it is always a good idea to check before you enter if there is any chance you will run out of money.
