By: Patrick M. Simasko, Medicaid Attorney, Macomb County, Michigan. If you are attempting to obtain medicaid benefits for your nursing home stay, you must be aware of a recent law change. You may want to preplan your funeral by purchasing a life insurance policy. In Michigan, if the life insurance policy is not irrevocably transferred and integrated into your guaranteed funeral contract, then it can be treated as a countable asset and disqualify you from Medicaid otherwise its considered a final expense funeral policy which is not recognized in Michigan as being an exempt asset.
