I'll bet this is the source of the confusion... What the "expert" probably meant to say was that if a person is receiving Medicaid for nursing home care and is named in a will, the state by whom the Medicaid payments were made has a claim against that inheritence. I was recently executor for an estate where one of those named in the will was in (and had been for a long time) a nursing home under Medicaid, having exhausted all her assets earlier. All her share of the inheritence went to the State of Connecticut. (I assume the Nutmeg State had already paid in excess of the inheritence amount under Medicaid.)
