Legal Question

Asked on: 6/21/13, 5:22 am

My father in law just entered a long term care facility and currently has 4 or 5 months of full coverage with Medicare. After that he will have to pay out of pocket. Since his house still has a mortgage and is excluded in determining eligability for MedicAid would it be wise/legal to pay off the house with his 401k money to avoid that money going to a nursing home?
