Dear JACUSTOMER - This depends on whether you have any assets or whether you transferred any assets within 5 years of applying to Medicaid. If you had no assets within five years of filing an application then you would owe nothing however if any assets were transferred within the five years prior to applying then the value of those assets must be paid back. So it all depends on the circumstances as to whether you or your estate will owe anything to Medicaid.
