Been living with mom since divorced 12 yrs ago. Mom has multiple health issues and numerous surgeries. In oct 2014 mom put the house in my name. April 2018 mom had to be placed in a NH due to safety issues and dementia progressing. I am now in the battle of my life, due to long term Medicaid denial due to the 5 year look back. I am a nurse, they have gotten irrefutable evidence from her doctor and many others that my care has kept her out of a NH. I now have an elder care attorney to fight this for me at a fair hearing. I am soooo stressed. Do people have luck at these hearings??!!
The house transfer to you within the 5 yr look back is one.
But there’s could be others as well, like commingling of financials so there appears to be other gifting transfer issues besides the house between the 2 of you?
Do you still work full time or did you these last few years while living & caring for your mom?
Did she write checks or other unaccounted for cash withdrawals within the 5 year (Summer 2013) that could have piqued medicaids interest?
did you get a SW letter as to care needed?
The MD letters did they put any ICD codes on the letter and letter was on their stationary with state licensing #?
the House is value high? Like 550k - 750k range?
whats your understanding of the reasons?
could there be a eligibility issue due to not “needing” skilled nursing care? I had this with my mom as there was a CF with the initial intake onto her admit paperwork as to her medications and Co-morbidity p. Medical Medicaid at need appeal whole different maze.
