Medi-Cal Recovery State Plan Amendment Approved – Regulations Coming
CMS issued its approval of the DHCS State Plan Amendment (SPA) that makes various changes to the Medi-Cal program’s estate recovery program, including limiting estate recovery to probated estates for only federally-mandated services; adding a hardship waiver criterion for a “homestead of modest value”; eliminating recovery from surviving spouses and registered domestic partners; and updating the interest rates for voluntary liens.
