Does Medicaid have to be paid back after death? How can I protect my estate from nursing home costs? Is there a statue of limitations on Medicaid Estate Recovery? These are questions families ask when their loved one needs Medicaid nursing home benefits. If you're loved one receives Medicaid benefits for long-term care, after they pass, their estate will usually be subject to a claim by the Texas Medicaid Estate Recovery Program (MERP). Many families end up losing their biggest asset - the home - in this process. If your loved one is still living, we may still be able to help them put in place the paperwork to prevent the loss of the home, even if they are already in a nursing home and receiving benefits.

If your loved one has already passed, we are often able to represent you sucessfully to force Medicaid Estate Recovery to withdraw the claim. Request your free initial consultation today, to find out if we can help your family.
