4 years after the death of the individual, the patient's home was sold and lien was paid. Now Medicaid is claiming that the death wasn't reported, which it was. Medicaid is saying they should have been paid first, even though they didn't ask for anything right after the death. What is aggravating the Estate was worth less than $25,000. We have been trying to get someone to help us because the lien was placed illegally in the first place. The lien was $21,158.62 including penalties and interest. We are not financially prepared to get a lawyer to fight the lien. Pro Bono Lawyers don't take Probate cases and Private Lawyers want $20,000. Legal Aid Lawyers won't help either. We don't want anyone else to be taken advantage of in such a way.
