First, never heard that children were beneficiaries of parents pensions. My nephew is because he is disabled. Did Medicaid ever pay for his care? If not, then u don't owe anything. Can't get Medicaid until money is spent down. Call the Medicaid office you applied to and ask if there is any balance due. If there is then ask about the pension.

I’m confused, so the elder was on Medicaid died but had a pension with an after death benefit? Is that it?
If so, my understanding is that how the beneficiary reads for the pension is going to be critical as to whether it’s subject to estate recovery. Was it considered an asset of the estate? If the beneficiary was the estate of the deceased, then it would be totally a probatable asset of his estate. So it’s subject to estate recovery/ MERP. How the check was written can be a clue as to this.

Is it that someone in the family has gotten a NOI (Notice oF Intent) from the state’s Medicaid program or from state’s outside contractor for MERP? So that’s why the worry now?
