How Do I Get Medicaid to Stop Sending Estate Recovery Notices When There Is Nothing to Recover?

  • May 17th, 2017
Q
My mother passed away with no assets -- no house, no life insurance, no savings, etc. What do I need to provide to Medicaid so they stop sending notices about recovering benefits paid to the nursing home? There is nothing to recover.
A

This will depend on the state, but a simple letter explaining the circumstances should do the trick. If the notices have a number to call on them, you might try calling too. The call itself may solve the problem or the person you engage may be able to explain the appropriate steps to take in your state.
