Can I gift my children $14,000 a year?

No. Not if you are going into a nursing home and applying for Medicaid to pay for it. The $14,000 a year gift that everyone talks about is for gift tax purposes. It does not apply to Medicaid. Any gifts made within 5 years of applying for Medicaid will result in a penalty.
