My disabled mom (64 years old) is currently on Medicare and Medicaid says she will not quality due to the fact that she owns two houses. One of the houses is an old lake house that is falling down and not worth much, and she does not want to sale it due to the fact that it was my dad's favorite place in the world and it belonged to his uncle. Grandkids don't want her to sale it either lots of memories there. Is there a way to gift it or sell it cheap to a family member so that she can get Medicaid to help pay for her medications? Her disability check is 1,200 and her medicine is $800 to $1,100 a month with Medicare. That along with her utilities and car insurance she usually doesn't have money for food or necessities. I help her when I can, but I have 3 kids, two of which will be in college next year. I have read about the look back period but how will that affect her while living at her own home?
