Hi annis,

If the account is not in the estate, then Medicaid may not be able to come after that account.

Thanks

Hi Guest,

As far as I know, they are quite justified to ask you to pay for the Medicaid. They will go for a estate recovery program. Under this program, the state can file a claim against the estate of a deceased Medicaid recipient, who is 55 years old or above, who have applied for certain long-term care. Claims will include the cost of services, hospital care, and prescription drugs supported by Medicaid. Usually they go for the recovery after the death of the recipient. So, hopefully they have to send you the letter as a part of their duty to collect the costs of providing medicaid.

Thanks,

Jerry

Where is this rule stated for pay back or estate recovery against a deceased individuals estate?

Hi arobi,

You can contact your state health department to get information on rules regarding pay back or estate recovery against a deceased individuals estate.

Thanks
