Depressing listing appointment

Real Estate Agent with John L. Scott Sp34627

That was depressing.... I went to see a manufactured home on a rented lot. It was in pretty bad shape. The lady who owns it just had a heart attack on November 2. Her hospital bill is over $84K and I am sure that doesn't include the doctor bills. She has applied for medicaid. Usually they will lean your asset. The home is for $30,000. If they put a lien on her home that will take away any money she gets less $5000. Is there anyone that knows how to help her? If I am correct it doesn't matter what she sells the home for since she wont get to keep the money. It is a resident only place. Lot rent is $405.  Sometimes you just want to cry.


Our medicaid expansion doesn't go into effect until January 1, 2020.

Medicaid is merciless! They like to get their hands on everything the receipients owns.  I have seen many people lose their homes to medicare.  Very unfortunte!

Good morning again Debbie. This is really sad. I can't help reflect on how lucky I am.

I know.  Me too.  There comes a point in your life that starting over again is not practical or possible.  I think I will call her and make some suggestions for help.  The sad thing is this broken down mobile home is the only thing she has and it will not be useful to her if they lein it for medical bills.
