Estate Recovery is the program that allows the State of Michigan to make a claim against the property of an individual who receives Medicaid, after they die, to recoup costs of services. These can include the costs of care paid by Medicaid for a resident of a nursing home.

Michigan was the last of the US states to implement an estate recovery program. However, the federal government continues to reject Michigan’s estate recovery plan. As such, it appears Michigan WILL NOT have estate recovery anytime in the near future.
