If their parents are attempting to gift the money to remove it from their estate, it may not be a good idea for them to be the owners.

If it's for reducing estate-tax purposes, I think it's a good idea for them to open their own 529 with grand-kid as beneficiary.

However I don't know what the deal would be for Medicaid
