Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Medicaid is entitled to recovery of all money paid out on behalf of an insured and this money is to come from the estate of the deceased, NOT FROM THE HEIRS. So, medicaid is entitled to a claim against her estate and you will need to negotiate with Medicaid based on the amount of assets in the estate and many times they agree to take less money.
They can go back for the entire time they provided benefits, but again they will consider the assets of your mother in law's estate to determine what they will negotiate to accept.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
