My grandmother died 7 years ago and Medicaid filed a claim against the estate. At that time she did not have anything to open an estate. Her husband died 4 years prior to her death. He was in a class action lawsuit for asbestos exposure contributing to his cancer. We are now in the settlement phase of the lawsuit. I have now had to open an estate for the grandmother for this workmans compensation settlement. Will Medicaid claim still stand?
