Do I have to wait 5 years after giving anything away to get Medicaid?

In Florida, Medicaid requires that a person be financially needy, medically needy and either in or about to go in a nursing home. We have a lot of different types of Medicaid in Florida and I'm specifically speaking about the nursing home Medicaid. So if you're giving assets away to someone just to qualify yourself from Medicaid. Medicaid will frown on that. They can look back over five years to see what you've done with your assets and what gifts you've made.
