In 1988 my parents had a life estate deed on their home made up with I, the daughter as grantor. The home was free of a mortgage at that time. Now I have lived in the house since that time, and so have my parents. They now both have to go into a nursing home and are on institutional medicaid. I know medicaid cannot touch the house as long as they are alive but what about after they die? Can they take the house and use it in a estate recovery for medicaid?I know I cannot sell or rent it till after their death, because it can be considered as part of their income. I am from Wisconsin.
