Lessons from CA: Medicaid Estate Recovery

Lessons from CA: Medicaid Estate Recovery

Executive Summary

California is among a limited number of states that recovers against the estates of its Medicaid beneficiaries for more than what is federally required, which has been identified as a barrier to enrollment. This year, California is attempting to address this issue through legislation, which the state legislature passed with a unanimous vote, and is now headed to the Governor’s desk. In this month’s, Lessons from California, we highlight how NHeLP is working with advocates in California to support the legislation and urge it to be signed into law.
