Can We Pay Off My Grandmother’s Medicaid Estate Recovery Over Time Instead of in a Lump Sum?

Each state handles estate recovery differently, so it will depend on your state. Given the circumstances, it is likely that the state would like to be paid fully over time rather than receive a smaller lump sum. The state may require your mother’s estate or her heirs to sign a promissory note and mortgage for the amount due.
