By pre-planning and pre-paying funeral arrangements, that money is not counted when assets are examined for Medicaid qualification. The money is placed in an irrevocable prepaid trust. It can only be spent on the funeral plans that are pre-arranged before the person dies.

Other ways to save money discussed on this episode of A Good Goodbye TV include:

  • Veteran’s benefits for burial in a national cemetery.
  • Free cremation by donating the body to science.
  • Conducting a home funeral or burial.
  • Shopping at several funeral homes before there’s a death.
