My mom has stage 3 b anul cancer spreading fast n curious if the government takes all my inheritance since I’ve been on aid so long?
This is a very fact specific question as to how you inherit it and what form of property it is that you inherit.
You should talk to an estate planning attorney so that they can look over all the documents and advise you on how you can inherit this money.

In terms of potential Medi-Cal estate recovery (reimbursement for expenses paid by Medi-Cal), Medi-Cal may only seek recovery against your estate at the time of your ultimate passing and only if your estate requires probate. With proper guidance in regards to your own estate planning, you can very easily avoid exposing your estate to the probate process. My recommendation is that you consult an estate planning attorney with Medi-Cal planning experience.
Depending upon the specific assets you will be inheriting, it may also be possible to maintain your Medi-Cal eligibility with proper planning (if that is your goal). It is also possible that your mother can arrange her estate in such a manner that the assets can be set aside for your benefit upon her passing without jeopardizing your eligibility for Medi-Cal or other government programs.
