what counts as cost in Indiana medicaid?
I am from Illinois. I have to switch to Indiana. I am a little nervous about doing so because I hear a lot is different, there. I know that generally speaking the only things public aid counts are rent and utilities. I don't know if Indiana counts your vehicle if you are making payments and it is your only vehicle. Does any one know?

RE: what counts as cost in Indiana medicaid?
For Medicaid eligibility purposes, one vehicle is excluded of any value, if it is owned by the applicant and used to transport the applicant and/or a member of the applicant's household. So it does not matter if payments are being made on it or not. This applies to all 50 states, since it is a federal law.

Note, however, that once the applicant is qualified for Medicaid, the applicant is not permitted to use any part of their income to continue payments on the vehicle; it all must go to the nursing home (Medicaid pays the balance of the monthly bill).
