Can a parent sell their home to a child and qualify for Title 19 after the funds from the home are used up with her nursing home?

My mother has a home that is paid in full and is currently in a nursing home. She has lived on a very limited monthly income since my father passed away and currently did not qualify for Title #19 in Iowa due to small 5000 insurance policy she had in her name that we were not aware at the time of filing for Title 19. If she sells her home to one of her children for fair market value and utilizes the funds from this sell on her NH care until they are depleted. Would there be any issues regarding the 5 year look back to the child that purchases this property? Q.

Benjamin, it would be best for you to contact your Mom's State Medicaid office with that question.... as every State has different rules and regulations.
