"Medicare and Medicaid Will Cover My Bills"
Medicare insurance is generally available for those who are disabled and for people over age 65. Medicaid is the government program that helps those in financial need. It will not kick in until virtually all of your assets and your spouse's assets have been consumed. People who have higher assets or income may end up "spending down" their savings and assets in order to be eligible.
