Article Discusses Michigan's Estate Recovery Act

TrackBacks (0)

An article by Alexandra Smith, J.D. candidate at University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, discusses the implementation of Michigan's estate recovery law.  In 2007, Michigan passed the Medicaid Estate Recovery Act.  Under the act, people who received Medicaid benefits for nursing homes, and other services can be required to reimburse the state after they die.  The money for the reimbursement would be taken from their estate.  As an executor or related party, this may come as an unpleasant surprise.  The article examines Michigan's Estate Recovery Act and makes recommendations to modify it.  

See Alexandra Smith, "Widening the Gap Between Rich and Poor: Issues and Recommendations for the Implementation of Michigan's Medicaid Estate Recovery Law," 90 U. Det. Mercy L. Rev. 141 (Fall 2012).
