She asking if she has to pay back Medicaid from the inheritance she is to receive. She's not asking how to retain Medicaid. Thats another issue.
This is fully in the wheelhouse of a competent elder law attorney. I would suggest you consult with one, in person, asap. They can guide you on how to legally and ethically protect that asset and minimize what has to be repaid to the government.See question

I have plenary guardianship over my mothers person and property as well as my grandmother i am trying to get medicaid for my mom and opened a special needs trust for her 401k and for her half of the house i just sold (my grandmother owns the other...
You must disclose to DCF/medicaid. The point of establishing special needs trusts / qualified income trusts, etc... is to explain to medicaid why they cannot count the assets and income in those vehicles.
I would highly suggest, if you have not done so already, consulting with a medicaid planning / elder law attorney to make sure this is handled properly.
Best of luck to you!See question
Rear ended by a delivery truck while waiting for the red light turn green. Several herniations. Dr recommended some kind of neck disc surgery. If i say maybe later, do i get less money for settlement or how does this work? I don't want to get a...
With the same caveat everyone else gave you (I.e. Check with your lawyer, every case is different). Generally, yes.
All else being equal, carriers tend to offer less money to injury victims who need surgery, but can live with the pain; compared to injury victims who need surgery, and move forward with the procedure.
Hope this answers your question. Good luck to you.See question

Meet with an elder law attorney who handles Medicaid planning. While in an ALF now, your family should be prepared should she require nursing home care. At that point, depending on state law and the value of the home in trust, it might be at risk.See question

This is a really good time to sit down with a local elder law attorney to explain your options.
Re: gift taxes. Just aware that the IRS and Medicaid do not always play well. Medicaid will penalize your mother (should she apply and need nursing home care) if she has gifted any amount of money within five years of application. A 10K gift wont trigger gift-tax penalty but will will trigger a medicaid-qualification penalty!
An elder law attorney who handles medicaid planning will explain how to legally and ethically shift assets in a way that does not disqualify your mother should she need medicaid in the future.
You are not too late. Set up a consultation with a local elder law attorney ASAP.See question
