A: One of the other 3 owners, or anybody else for that matter, can buy your brother's share. Medicaid will expect the purchaser to pay 1/4 of the tax appraised value. Be aware, though, the cash paid for purchase will also be considered an asset or resource for Medicaid. If the purchase proceeds cause your brother to go over the $2000 resource limit, someone will need to spend down his funds so that he can remain Medicaid eligible.
Medicaid can (and likely will) put a lien on his share, but unless it's listed for sale or sold, he'll still be considered to be over resourced and won't qualify for benefits.
