I doubt it – but check with Social Services to see if there is a Rural Health Network dentist in the area – they go on a sliding scale basis (or free) OR check to see if there is a dental college in your area. That is the new place for people to be going to get their dental work done – it’s done by students, supervised by the dental professor, and it’s way cheaper than a regular dentist. Don’t worry, the students have already gone through their learning, it’s just a little practical experience they need. You won’t know the difference between a dental student or the regular dentist.

Can father do a gift of equity to me –if he is receiving medicaid?

Question by GOT2BREAL: Can father do a gift of equity to me –if he is receiving medicaid?
My father is currently in a nursing home and is receiving Medicaid. We had to put his home up for sale because Medicaid said they would not continue to pay as long as he had the home He has no spouse. I am his only child. My question is…. I can’t really afford the price that social services says I must sell the home for. Can my father do a gift of equity to me and still receive medicaid?

I live in the state of Virginia that I think has a 5 year lookback period. I don’t want to do anything that will affect his medicaid benefits.

Thanks for your responses.
