My father receives $850 a month in social security. He had received $100K from a worker's compensation settlement 5 years ago. He has had Medicaid but his health has declined and was told he would qualify for Long Term Care. He asked me for help with his application and I told him to list his workers comp settlement as an asset. He refused and did the paperwork without my help. It turns out that he had two separate bank accounts and was only reporting the bank account with $100 in it to Medicaid. It also turns out that over the past 5 years he has taken all except for $10K of the money with him on yearly vacations to El Salvador and spent and gave all of it away. Can he get in trouble for lying to Medicaid? Does this mean he won't qualify for Medicaid to pay for a caregiver in his home?
