If someone has received public benefits which include things like state disability, Medicaid, SSI, cash aid, TANF, anything from social services the state can come after those assets you acquired since you qualified for Medicaid. To qualify for Medicaid, your assets are limited to $2000 for one person. If you later come into some assets or income, the state is empowered to recover those benefits paid to you. People don't realize that all welfare benefits are supposed to be repaid. Most people never have any way to do that, but those are not free benefits. If you were also to get paid a settlement or win a lottery the state would deduct what you owe in benefits off the top. Think of Medicaid as a loan, rather than a freebee. You dont need a lawyer to do anything, as this is legal. The state gave you free benefits because you were low income. When that changes, you must pay them back.

True. Medicaid is WELFARE health insurance. If you HAVE assets, you have to declare them, when you inherit them. If you don't, it's welfare fraud.
