I am on a joint bank account with my Dad who will be applying for Medicaid in a couple of years. He has been in a NH for 5 years. Can I pay myself a small salary for handling his financial affairs or will that count as a tranfer for the look back period. One caseworker I talked to actually told me that I could spend the money on myself since its my account too as long as the item was for me personally and I had a receipt. Can this be correct? I'm in Texas.
