Asked in Medical Insurance
Can you have Medicaid and a personal health insurance plan?
Yes, you can have both Medicaid and a private health insurance plan. The Medicaid plan will pay after your private plan pays. This means that your doctor (or hospital or other service provider) will bill your private plan first; then they will send the private plan's explanation of benefits (called an "EOB") to Medicaid.

Why would medicaid put a lien on a decedent's estate?
Yes, Medicaid frequently pays a portion of the bill for nursing home residents who have spent almost all their savings and whose monthly income does not cover the cost of care. Medicaid pays the difference between an individual's income and the cost of nursing home care. Some states have an income cap on gross income, and special income trusts must be set up to establish eligiblity in those states. Right now Medicaid is the only national program available to help pay for long-term care; Medicaid is the main source of payment for nursing homes. If a recipient owns property that property is subject to a lien for Medical Assistance.
