My father, 91 years old, has been in assisted living and now is in a nursing home since 2006, as of 2011 when his medical need changed and was moved to a nursing home Medi-Cal kicked in and they now pay the majority (about 60%) of his rent there. His home is in his trust name (I'm trustee) and he has a $100K note outstanding. When he passes will Medi-cal recover all the expenses they paid for him first and then if there is anything left the note, or is it vice versa?

Assuming the note pre-dates his NH admission date and is collateralized by the house, the note gets paid off first and then Medicaid.
