    deplete to quality

    I have troubles understanding the highlighted part of the following sentence:

    Self-pay residents deplete their resources (or other coverage ends) to quality for Medicaid.

    Any help appreciated.

    Re: deplete to quality

    "to qualify", not "to quality". Otherwise it doesn't make sense.

    To qualify for Medicaid (to be eligible for it), you need to have only few assets -- rich people can afford to pay, so they don't need Medicaid.
    So, one way to get Medicaid is to 'deplete your resources' (either hide or spend your money, or make it appear that you are poorer than you really are.

    Re: deplete to quality

    Thanks a lot.

    So it must be a typo in the original text.

    I've got it.
