Can I make a large gift to immediately qualify for medi-cal?

It depends on the gift. For example, you could give away your home to your children and qualify for Medical immediately. That might not be a good strategy, every family is different. If you were to give away cash, for example, or other countable assets, Medical will impose a disqualification period. At OC Elder Law, we can accomplish your goals of giving away cash and significantly reduce your disqualification period often times down to zero months.
