Can My Parents Sell Their Home and Pay for Upgrades to Our Home Without Triggering Medicaid's Transfer Rules?

The answer to both questions is yes, but the payments need to be structured so that your state Medicaid agency doesn’t treat them as gifts to you causing up to five years of ineligibility for benefits. I strongly recommend that you work with a local elder law attorney to set this up so that it passes muster.
