The laws are different in each state and determined by that state's legislature.
Most states have a five year look back period on financial diversions. The elder is penalized that amount in benifits from the start after spenddown.
Your best bet is to find an elder attorney or inquire of the state what info they have regarding their requirements.
Hope it works out for you.
