Quoting Misty Walls:" ill see if i can find a link somewhere. I work in assisted living homes & we had a resident who ... [snip!] ... that money was gone. Her rent for the center was 2500 a month plus her medication costs, that money didnt last all that long"
There must be something else to it. From what I understand to qualify for medicare you just have to be old. My parents are wealthy, my dad's on medicare (retired plastic surgeon), and my mom will be on medicare in a couple of years. I don't know if they have burial plots but they sure do have a whole bunch of money tied up in other places.
