My mother’s house was deeded over to me and my brother in 2005. She continued living there until 2 years ago.
She went into a nursing home 2 years ago, is getting Medicare and Medicaid, and her pension and social security are going to the nursing home (except for $50 a month into an account for personal needs)
I just got a letter from Medicaid asking if the house she lived in is being rented out. Why would they want to know that? It’s not her house, it was deeded over to me and my brother in 2005. I am pretty sure it was well within the lookback period.
The house is being rented out, it has been rented out for about 6 months. But it is our house and should have nothing to do with Medicaid.
I’m going to try to speak to them today. What should I say, or not say?
