What does spend down mean?

When someone is looking to apply for nursing home Medicaid, Medicaid looks at how many countable assets they have, and if they're over the asset limit, they will not be eligible for Medicaid. Spend down refers to the process of spending down assets in ways that are Medicaid approved in order to achieve the ability to apply for Medicaid and be approved.
