Pennsylvania’s estate recovery program is intended to recover Medicaid costs from the probate estates of deceased recipients. They can only recoup expenses paid during the last 5 years of the recipient’s life and they can only recover money from their probate estate. That means that any assets which are jointly owned with right of survivorship (JTWROS), and therefore left out of the probate estate, can’t be recovered by Medicaid. Lillian can advise you on strategies for protecting you or your loved one’s assets from the estate recovery program.
