Money spent on funeral arrangements is allowed under Medicaid’s rules, depending on your state and eligibility requirements. Only four states offer burial or cremation assistance: Colorado, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Check your options to keep costs down.

You can always contact an elder law attorney familiar with your state laws and local resources.
