My father has a few bucks left but will soon need medicaid. My father is in a PA nursing home, he is down to 38,000 in his accounts. He can keep 8,000 cash which puts his cash and total assets to $30,000. I was told today by an attorney that we should buy a car for around 30k in his name which would make him eligible for Medicaid immediately. One month after he is on Medicaid we can transfer the car into my name and not get penalized. Does this make sense and is it legal?
