Does My Revocable Trust Protect My Assets From Medicaid?

No, your revocable trust does not protect your assets from Medicaid. When available resources exceed $2,000 for a single person or $121,220 for a married couple then Medicaid benefits are denied. You can amend an existing revocable trust to make it irrevocable so that the assets will not be counted by Medicaid after five years.
