If I transfer my home to a child of mine, does that start the 5-year “Look-back” period running before I can qualify for Medicaid to pay for my nursing home? Yes, any uncompensated transfer starts the clock ticking, except for transfers to a disabled individual or a child of yours who lives with you in your residence for a period of 2 consecutive years before you enter a nursing home. There are very strict rules with regard to the exceptions, so you should consult with a qualified Elderlaw attorney.
