Mom has been on Medicaid for a couple of years now. When she first signed up she lived only on her small social security check and has zero assets. She's had health issues and thankfully Medicaid has paid for her surgeries and provides a home health aide on a daily basis. I am her only child, live an hour away and do what I can to help. I've paid her bills with her checking account because she mishandled her ss check many times. I now have power of attorney. Here's where this gets interesting: we just found out her father left her some money in his will. I'm afraid that Medicaid will just take this money or knock her off the program. Can anyone advise me on what I should do?
