Receiving money from my home equity. I am 59 years old and receiving Medicaid through the state of California. I am also caring for my 86-year-old mother on a full-time basis. I needed to draw a large amount of cash out from a shared appreciation on my home equity. If I draw a significant amount of cash out how will that affect my Medicaid and what can I do to stay qualified and not lose Medicaid? Can I give the money to my mom being she’s 86-year-old and exempt the cash for her care. She lives with me.
