(This amendment reduces Medicaid expenditures by $1.0 million from the general fund and $1.0 million from the nongeneral fund in the second year from expanded estate recovery efforts. The introduced budget provides funding for three additional positions for the estate recovery program. Under Medicaid law, following the death of the Medicaid recipient a state must attempt to recover from his or her estate whatever long-term care benefits it paid for the recipient's care.)
