Prepaying a funeral allows you to lock in the cost of the funeral today so that your family will have no financial burden in the future.

Question: How do I prearrange a funeral if I am receiving Medicaid Assistance?
It may be necessary for the prearranged funeral contract to be termed as "irrevocable" if the funeral recipient is applying to or is currently receiving Medicaid assistance. Making the contract irrevocable does not change what or how the Johnson Family Funeral Home will provide the services and merchandise at the time of need.
