Spouse in nursing home on medicaid. Can still file joint return?

Yes, you can file a joint return with your spouse as long as you were married on December 31,2016. I can't, however, speak to how that would affect Medicaid eligibility.Each state has different rules about who can get Medicaid and what is covered.
