Nursing home bill left to spouse

Yes, you may have some responsibility for paying your spouse's nursing home bill. What that responsibility is depends on the law in your state and whether or not your spouse was covered by Medicaid while in the nursing home. I recommend that you consult with an elder law attorney in your area about exactly what your responsibility may be.
