If MERP finds an asset of real property (only worth $3,000) during their investigation after a NH residents death, and it is within the 60 month look back period, would they impose a penalty on the resident? or the family? The resident would be dead....would they then penalize the family? I saw in the MERP handbook that they don't require family members to pay, only the resident's estate....I know I'm not wording this right, as I can't remember the exact wording in the handbook right now. Also, does anyone know what specific questions MERP asks on the questionnaire sent with the NOI upon death of NH resident?
