I have a questions regarding Medicaid and gifting of money

I have a questions regarding Medicaid and gifting of money in Maryland. I have been giving advice by a financial planner and wanted to make sure the information is accurant.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: First of all how much does it cost to run this by a lawyer?JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.Customer: Ok, here is the scenario. My parents are applying for VA Aid and Assistance. They may only have $20,000 in their checking account at any time. The planner wants by to liquidate my mother's IRA and their Mutual funds and put them in a separate account to be held by me and my sister. This account would be used only to pay for their medical and assisted living expenses. The money won't last them very long so Medicaid will be in their future. I know Maryland has a 5 year look back and the money will look like a gift. He assured me that if all records of payments for their medical care are kept with the bank statements that it will not be considered gifting. Is that correct?
