The Governors proposed State Budget (AB 40) contains various provisions in it which if passed would dramatically change the Title 19 (Medicaid) rules for persons or couples to become eligible for Title 19. If passed, this proposal would also change the State estate recovery rules and would expand the type of assets the State would be allowed to collect from after a Title 19 eligible person or that persons spouse dies. Our firm will be watching what happens with this State budget proposal carefully and will include additional updates on this budget as things become known.
