Agency filings affecting this section
Age when recovery applies.
The client's age and the date when services were received determine whether the client's estate is liable for the cost of medical services provided. Subsection (1) of this section covers liability for medicaid services and subsection (2) covers liability for state-only funded long-term care services. An estate may be liable under both subsections.
(1) For a client who on July 1, 1994 was:
(a) Age sixty-five or older, the client's estate is liable for medicaid services that were subject to recovery and provided on and after the date the client became age sixty-five or after July 26, 1987, whichever is later;
(b) Age fifty-five through sixty-four years of age, the client's estate is liable for medicaid services that were subject to recovery and provided on and after July 1, 1994; or
(c) Under age fifty-five, the client's estate is liable for medicaid services that were subject to recovery and provided on and after the date the client became age fifty-five.
(2) Regardless of the client's age when the services were provided, the client's estate is liable for state-only funded long-term care services provided to:
(a) Clients of the home and community services division of the department of social and health services (DSHS) on and after July 1, 1995; and
(b) Clients of the developmental disabilities administration of DSHS on and after June 1, 2004.
