Medicaid Estate Recovery Program

Several States have not implemented all the requirements of their Medicaid Estate Recovery Programs; therefore, they might be running the programs ineffectively and not recovering certain long-term care costs due from the applicable estates of deceased Medicaid recipients. We will determine whether State agencies, under their Medicaid Estate Recovery Programs: (1) had policies and procedures to comply with Federal and State requirements, (2) attempted to recover the applicable reimbursement costs for certain long-term care, (3) accurately reported Medicaid estate recovery amounts associated with certain long-term care services on the CMS-64, and (4) identified the costs incurred to recover from the estates.
