Mom (88) is in a Medicaid MLTC program in NYC - she has a home health aide. Mom has community Medicaid with a small monthly spend down. There is no possibility of her ever going into a nursing home. She has zero assets. However, mom will come into $50,000 upon a relative's death. I understand this lump sum would be considered income in the month received and an asset thereafter. I also see there is no transfer penalty for community Medicaid. Can mom transfer the money to her son and/or other relatives to reduce her assets to the Medicaid threshold to stay eligible for Medicaid?
