If you can afford about 1/4-1/3 the cost, then Medicare/Medicaid will fund the remaining lion's share, *AS LONG AS* you've appeared to be broke (due to proper planning) for the prior 5 years.


That's cheating (ethically - I'm not referring to legally) and unfair to taxpayers. It might be legal, but it's not the right thing to do.
