What is the maximum assets/resources an applicant can have and still qualify for long-term nursing home benefits?

For Institutional Care Program (ICP) nursing home benefits in Florida, Medicaid is not available unless the total value of a Medicaid applicant's resources (assets), excluding income, at the time of application and throughout the time he or she is receiving benefits does not exceed $2,000 for an individual and $3,000 for a married couple when they both apply for benefits.  The resources of both the institutionalized spouse and the community spouse are considered available to the institutionalized spouse.
