My mom has Alzheimer's. As her representative and next of kin, I complete her Medicaid recertification paperwork on her behalf each year. I understand that Medicaid may recoup their costs via the estate (MERP). My mom does not have anything through probate. However, will the state also try to claim against my assets (ie. estate) since I've signed the paperwork on my mom's behalf as her authorized representative. I did not receive the medicaid assistance To my knowledge, the recipient is subject to MERP only. Please advise.
