Legal Question in Elder Law in Virginia

My mom is 90 with dementia and might need Medicaid help in the near future. She filed a deed of gift for her home to my sister 6 years ago as joint-tenants with right of survivorship.Will Medicaid make them sell Mom's house or does it already belong to my sister? Or would Medicaid just go after Mom's portion of the house?
