MEDICAID has a federally required "5 year lookback"
This means if you are anticipating mom will need to apply for MEDICAID within the next 5 years?Then you do NOT want to transfer title.Period.If you do, she will not be eligible for MEDICAID.That said, if you anticipate that she will not need MEDICAID for at least 5 more years? Then she can make the transfer.
