Q) My niece’s husband just died and has no money for burial. How much does Medicaid provided for burial expenses.
A) I found this information on State of Virginia Website. I don’t know what state you are in, but there may be medicaid funds available in your state.
$3,500 Limit: Most Medicaid recipients can set aside $3,500 to help pay for their funeral and
burial expenses. If you are married, you can also set aside $3,500 for the funeral or burial
expenses of your spouse. Medicaid will not count this amount when determining eligibility if
you have no other burial arrangements.
