Here in the state of Florida, when somebody’s on Medicaid, the state has a lifetime lien on that person, when they die. So, any monies that Medicaid would have spent during the course of their lifetime, Medicaid now has a lien on their estate. The Medicaid Estate Recovery Department is the department that handles that. Whenever somebody dies here in the state of Florida, whether they are three hours old, or 100 years old, you have to notify the Medicaid Estate Recovery Department that they’ve passed.
