Notice About Estate Recovery

The Medi-Cal program must seek repayment from the estates of certain deceased Medi-Cal members for payments made, including managed care premiums, for nursing facility services, home and community-based services, and related hospital and prescription drug services provided to the deceased Medi-Cal member on or after the member’s 55th birthday.

If a deceased member does not leave an estate or owns nothing when they die, nothing will be owed.

To learn more about the estate recovery, go to the DHCS Estate Recovery Program web page, call 1-916-650-0490, or get legal advice.
