Calif. Legislature Sends Bill Limiting Seizure of Deceased Medi-Cal Beneficiaries’ Assets to Brown
The California Legislature has approved 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 measure now heads to Gov. Jerry Brown (D), who has until Sept. 30 to decide whether to sign it.
