In order to qualify for Medicaid, you cannot have more than $2,000 in assets. That's probably what the social worker was talking about.

That $2,000 limit does not include the home you own, one car, pre-paid funeral plans, life insurance policies or rental properties.

in some (all?) states, if the state spends money through Medicaid to house someone in a nursing home, the state can come after that person's estate after they die to recover the state's Medicaid spending.
