I have an unemployed relative who has just gone in the hospital with serious, possibly life threatening, problems (organ failure). She's been living with her retired mom and not working regularly for some time. She also has a teenage son. My mother doesn't have much money either, but she gets a small retirement. The hospital says we might be able to sign my relative up for Medicaid but I'm concerned about whether they'll try to count her mom's retirement income as part of her assets (and potentially go after that money, or any other assets her mom has). Does anyone know how these determinations are made?
