Pro­tect­ing sur­vivors

Los Angeles Times - - BUSINESS - Source: Cal­i­for­nia state Se­nate

The state each year seeks to col­lect mil­lions of dol­lars from the sur­vivors of Medi-Cal ben­e­fi­cia­ries. On Thurs­day, sen­a­tors voted to im­pose lim­its. As pro­posed, the state would: Fol­low fed­eral rules for re­cov­er­ing money rather than Cal­i­for­nia’s tougher reg­u­la­tions; Al­low sur­vivors to keep homes through a hard­ship ex­emp­tion; Pre­vent re­cov­er­ing money while a sur­viv­ing spouse is alive.
