Medi-Cal, Capital Gains and the Home

Medi-Cal, Capital Gains and the Home 

In previous blogs, we have discussed how we can establish the home as an “exempt asset” for qualification for Medi-Cal. However, if your home is in your estate when you pass away after having been on Medi-Cal, the state can pursue a recovery lien against your home.
