A: With proper planning in advance of the sale, you can avoid Medicaid touching any of the proceeds.

You have the option of selling with the intent on purchasing another home, which I talk about in this article:

Or, in the situation, where you want to sell the house and rent (or move into an ALF if you need extra help) or even move into a friend/child/sibling's home - there are a variety of strategies to protect the proceeds. They all have pros and cons.... and usually a combination of strategies are needed, which is why a consultation is needed.

I see you are in Seffner. I have an office in Brandon. Feel free to call to schedule a consultation.
