Can Mom lose Medicaid benefits by moving in with me?
I'm buying a home and am planning on moving my mother in with me. I specifically looked for a home with a downstairs bedroom and one that is easily accessible. My question deals with the financial aspect. Mom receives Medicaid. Is there any chance she could lose those benefits if I move her in with me? I myself only make about $30,000/year and was going to have mom as a "roommate" where she'd pay 1/2 the mortgage and 1/2 the bills, since she requires it to be MUCH warmer than I ever have my current place. I wasn't sure if I should do some sort of lease agreement, care agreement or roommate agreement so that she will not lose any benefits.
