Person on Medicaid passed away.

Life insurance benefits are generally exempt from Medicaid estate recovery. Policies with cash value are supposed to be cashed in as part of spend-down. You might need to check on filial responsibility laws, but if you are the beneficiary, you get to keep the proceeds and do not need to report.

It depends on who OWNED the policy. If the owner died and was on Medicaid, yes, you better let them know. Now if someone else OWNED it and you were beneficiary, no problem, keep it.
For example my sister is on Medicaid. I own her life insurance policy and I am the beneficiary, so Medicaid will not go after it. It's just enough for a small funeral and burial, which Medicaid would not pay for.
