Read the various articles he's written here and get his book from the library. Are you able to consult a certified Eldercare attorney?

I don't know. We need Igloo's or Gabriel Heiser's expertise.

I think she means when there has been gifting and Medicaid imposes a penalty of X number of months that they will not pay for care.

The only remedy that I've seen mentioned is getting the person the money was gifted to to pay it back; often not possible.

Thanks Barb....but then what? If gifts can’t be recovered does the family then become responsible at the risk of bankruptcy?

When gifting becomes part of the lookback, the patient is then penalized the dollar amount against time that would be spent in long term care. This can amount to years.
