We kept my Mom's chevy astro van in her name, worth about 1400. Mom is on medicaid. Can I trade the van we kept in her name for a more useful vehicle. I would keep it at about the same value, but we really don't need a seven passenger van to conduct her business. Do we need to tell medicaid, or can we just trade the vehicle, register the new one in her name, and save the paperwork should they ask about it?
