What you need to know

After a Medicaid recipient passes away, Estate Recovery works with families, courts, attorneys and others to recover funds for the Nebraska Medicaid Program.

People often have assets and resources which are disregarded when they apply for Medicaid. Depending on the nature of the asset or resource, it may be subject to recovery.

Estate Recovery will review available assets, liabilities and other situations to determine funds that should be pursued for recovery.

Certification Requests:

The "Request for CERTIFICATION of No Recoverable Amount" is available below.

NOTE: Effective May 31, 2019, DHHS is no longer authorized to issue Waivers of Restriction on Transfer of Trust Property ("LB72 Waivers") since the passage of LB593 (2019). However, we can certify that our records indicate there is no recoverable amount due to Medicaid Estate Recovery.
