I am concerned about your question. The first part of your question sounds like you are asking about a non us citizen who you might sponsor. If this is the case seek legal advice, medicaid may not cover the expense of hospital or nursing home.

Appendix B. Deeming and Sponsorship
"For LPRs (but not refugees and asylees), the law links the income of the person who sponsored the alien to immigrate to the United States with the immigrant’s income calculations when determining eligibility for most federal benefits. The basis of this policy is that the Immigration and Nationality Act excludes immigrants who appear “likely at any time to become a public charge.”59 This exclusion is implemented by provisions on deeming sponsors’ income and binding affidavits of support. Not all prospective LPRs are required to have affidavits of support to demonstrate that they will not become a public charge, and most exceptions are statutory (e.g.,refugees or employment-based LPRs).60 The affidavit of support is a legally binding contract that requires the sponsor to ensure that the
new immigrant will not become a public charge and to make the sponsor financially responsible for the new immigrant, as codified in §213A of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).61"
So there are some exceptions that is why to answer your question more information would be needed. I hope this is of some help.
