Living in Michigan and thinking of Estate Planning?

Michigan Estate Recovery - not here...not yet?

In November of last year, the State of Michigan adopted a new estate recovery law. For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, "estate recovery" is a term that describes the State's ability to recover funds from people that have been approved to receive Medicaid benefits for nursing home care. For many Medicaid applicants this means that the State would have a right to file la lien against a Medicaid recipients estate. Primarily, the target of these recovery acts are the Medicaid recipients' homes.
