I am really unsure of the 5 year look back period and as little as my mom has, I am paranoid about all of the questions that could be asked and I would have to answer for to help her get nursing Medicaid. How detailed do they get with credit card charges? If payments are made to pay a cc payment, is it questioned? Do they want to see detailed credit card transactions in detail? or they don't care as long as there is a payment to a credit card to her name. This is so hard.
