If you are you asking if a revocable trust provides asset protection for the owner from those assets being considered "countable assets" for Medicaid eligibility, the answer is unfortunately no..
Since a revocable trust is revocable, the maker of the trust can revoke it at any time so they are still considered the beneficial owner of those assets for Medicaid purposes.
If the trust was irrevocable, and the assets had been put into it at least 5 years before any application for benefits, they would not be countable.
