Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you question.
To answer directly, any sale is subject to a 'five year look back'. That means that if a transfer took place longer than 5 years ago, the proceeds can go to the descendants, but otherwise the funds go toward her medical care. So if she passes away and there are medical bills, Medicaid has the right to pursue those assets first, and then whatever remains would go to the descendants. He is not entitled to the funds. I am sorry!
