Brown Should Sign Legislation Limiting Seizure of Deceased Medi-Cal Beneficiaries’ Assets, Editorial Argues
A Los Angeles Times editorial argues that Gov. Jerry Brown (D) should sign a bill (SB 1124) that would limit the amount of assets the state can recoup from deceased Medi-Cal beneficiaries' estates. Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program. The editorial argues that the measure "strikes the right balance, barring the state from recovering routine costs while still having Medi-Cal seek reimbursement for long-term care."
