How Medicaid Views Joint Accounts With Children

One asks, "I've added my kids' names to my bank account. Will Medicaid look at this asset as being countable?"

Yes! The entire amount is counted unless you can prove some or all of the money was contributed by the person who is on the account. This rule applies to cash assets such as:

1. Savings and checking accounts.
2. Credit union share and draft accounts.
3. Certificates of Deposit.
4. U.S. Savings Bonds
