Will Medicaid Look at Every Check I Write for My Mother?

If you spend all the money for your mother and use checks rather than cash, you should have no problem. Every state, and to some extent every Medicaid office, is different. I would just keep all of your receipts and clear notes in your checkbook register just in case any questions are asked. But in general if you can track where the money went and that it was spent for your mother, you should be fine.
