The Medicaid program offers government assistance for medical expenses, and it’s available to people who have limited financial resources. If the person using the Medicaid program passes away, their estate can be subject to creditor claims seeking reimbursement for unpaid medical expenses.
Similarly, hospitals can also file claims against the estates of deceased individuals for unpaid bills. These situations can result in lengthy delays in the final settlement of the estate, and they pose a significant threat to the value of the proceeds that will pass to beneficiaries once creditor claims have been settled.
The legal team at Pollack Pollack & Kogan has extensive experience negotiating with both Medicaid representatives and hospitals, and our attorneys may be able to help the estate reach a settlement that could save thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars. If the estate of your late loved one is faced with Medicaid or hospital claims, we strongly recommend working with a knowledgeable negotiator who can apply Florida probate law to maximum benefit.
