Estate Recovery
If you spend time living in a nursing home, the Medicaid agency that assists in paying for your stay will look for a way to recover the costs of your nursing home stay. When you die the agency has the option to recover the proceeds from your estate, the process is known as estate recovery.

Join us on Thursday, July 21, 2022, from 12:15-12:45 PM EST, to learn about the MassHealth estate recovery process and the "Stop Unfair Medicaid Recoveries Act of 2022", which was introduced in the House of Representatives and is meant to limit estate recoveries. We will be joined by guest speakers, Attorney Jim Schuster of Southfield, Michigan, and Attorney Timothy R. Loff from The Law Offices of Timothy R. Loff of Newton, Massachusetts.

In this webinar we will be covering:
- How can MassHealth recover from your estate?
- What happens when MassHealth places a lien on your home?
- How would the "Stop Unfair Medicaid Recoveries Act" limit a Medicaid agency's power to recover from estates?

Feel free to submit general questions specific to the topic of the Estate Recovery for the Q&A portion of the webinar. Questions can be submitted in the confirmation email that will be sent upon registering. It is unlikely that we will have time to answer questions that are submitted during the webinar through Zoom.

The information presented in the webinar is for informational purposes only and is not a substitute for individualized legal advice.
