Mother in nursing home on Medicaid in Florida; home is in her name AND her daughters name

by Kaye
(St.Petersburg, Fl)

In 1996 Mom placed her home in Florida titled in her name and my name (daughter) using AND with right to survivorship. She gets homestead exemption and the notice just has her name on it, although we did register the title of the property with the county in 1996.

When she passes on, since she in on Medicaid, can the state take the property since on the title it names me and has the right to survivorship?

Thank you.

Homestead Protected in Florida
by: K. Gabriel Heiser

In Florida, the home is exempt from estate recovery for Medicaid payments made by the state (i.e., estate recovery) if the home passes to the surviving spouse or to certain lineal descendants as "homestead" property. Thus, it appears that you would be protected.

I just want to thank you for this site. It answered my questions. I think many people that do research on the net take it for granted and when they find what they are looking for they forget "someone put time, money, etc into providing me with this information."

Thank you!
