Estate Recovery

The Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services (DMAHS) has the authority to file a claim and lien against the estate of a deceased Medicaid beneficiary, or former beneficiary, to recover all Medicaid payments for services received on or after age 55. Your estate may be required to pay back DMAHS for those benefits.

The amount that DMAHS may recover includes, but is not limited to, all capitation payments to any managed care organization, transportation broker, PACE provider, or any other capitated provider, regardless of whether any services were received from an individual or entity that would have been reimbursed by the managed care organization, transportation broker, PACE provider, or other provider that is paid by capitation payments. 

DMAHS may recover these amounts when there is no surviving spouse, no surviving child(ren) under the age of 21,  no surviving child(ren) of any age who are blind, and no surviving child(ren) of any age who are permanently and totally disabled, as determined by the Social Security Administration.
