My mother is only 58. She lives on her own and because her mortgage is paid directly from her ex-husband to the mortgage company she doesn't have to count it as income. She has zero income so her Medicaid covers any medical bills but because of the house she has no assistance for any other bills. I have a quit claim deed she's given me I'm to file the minute she passes away. I've been paying all her utilities, etc. If she sold the house she would have to "pay down" until it's gone to qualify again for assistance. I'm wondering if we could create a personal care agreement that upon selling the house (postmortem or otherwise) she would back-pay me for all the bills and help. Would Medicaid honor something like that?
