Mass NAELA Estate Recovery Presentation
July 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
To provide clarity and answers to the public regarding the Estate Recovery Requirements Notice recently issued by MassHealth, the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (MassNAELA) will host an informational webinar on July 28, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. The Webinar will include MassNAELA members and advocates taking questions from attendees.
The MassHealth notice was sent in May to persons receiving MassHealth who may meet the requirements for Estate Recovery. MassHealth is required by law to seek repayment for the total cost of care services paid by MassHealth to members aged 55 and older and members of any age receiving long-term care in a nursing home or other medical institution if they leave a probate estate after their death. Any property or assets that are part of the probate estate are subject to Estate Recovery, which may apply whether or not the member is enrolled in a health plan.
MassNAELA has developed a seven-minute video explaining the notice, MassHealth Estate Recovery and the probate process, which can be viewed at https://youtu.be/QKuMIFb4BJU.
