Medicaid Estate Recovery

The term "estate recovery" refers to provisions of the federal law requiring states to attempt to recover payments made to providers on behalf of a Medicaid recipient, from the recipient's estate after his or her death. This has become law in the State of Michigan since 2010.

For individuals who receive Medicare assistance at age 55 or older, recovery is made from the individuals probate estate for all services covered by the Michigan Medicaid program.

We can assist our clients in preventing a Medicaid payback by preparing an estate plan that avoids probate and thus the assets are not subject to estate recovery.
