Another fly in the healthcare ointment

Expanded Medicaid’s fine print holds surprise: ‘payback’ from estate after death
http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/ ... ryxml.html

How's that "free" health insurance going to work out for you? And your heirs?

It wasn’t the moonlight, holiday-season euphoria or family pressure that made Sofia Prins and Gary Balhorn, both 62, suddenly decide to get married.

It was the fine print.

As fine print is wont to do, it had buried itself in a long form — Balhorn’s application for free health insurance through the expanded state Medicaid program. As the paperwork lay on the dining-room table in Port Townsend, Prins began reading.

She was shocked: If you’re 55 or over, Medicaid can come back after you’re dead and bill your estate for ordinary health-care expenses.

Gotta jump the broom, so that you can pass something on after you kick the bucket? :roll:

What Pelosi should have said was "We have to pass the bill, before you find out what's in it."
