Thanks for your question. You have the right to revoke your medi-cal here by notifying your case worker. You probably wouldn't qualify for long term care insurance here if they are already in a nursing home. If you transfer this back to the medical folks the state may try to do estate recovery once they decease.

I am not sure you want to do this here. The medi-cal would continue to pay for long term care until you cancel. I would discuss with local elder law lawyer before I didi anything here. You want one that is NAELA certified. Here is reference. Don't fool with anyone without certification here as ther are many minefields potentially.
