The 1993 Medicaid Estate Recovery Law allows the state to lay claim to a dead pe
The 1993 Medicaid Estate Recovery Law allows the state to lay claim to a dead person's estate if investigators determine the person received Medicaid benefits for which he or she was not eligible. Maine has spent less than $200,000 on its Medicaid recovery program in the current fiscal year, and has recovered more than $2 million during the past 12 months. The Maine Department of Human Services informed Medicaid recipients of the program in January, and many elderly are outraged and concerned.
