New York, NY (PressExposure) February 23, 2011 -- Meeting the criteria for Medicaid is often difficult. Many people give away their assets in an attempt to qualify, but this is a mistake; one that can cause up to five years of ineligibility or even disqualify you permanently from Medicaid benefits.

Naked in the Nursing Home, the newest book by Harold Lustig which is due out in April, explains how to best become eligible for Medicaid, and provides lists of the best people to consult before making important decisions about health care and insurance.
