Covered California braces for health insurance enrollment deadline

I want to let people know that those who are 55 years or older who qualify for medi cal under Obama Care. There is a catch, it isn't free. It is considered a loan and I confirmed this by e-mailing the recovery unit of the dhcs. The federal law OBRA93 mandates that states collect from estates of beneficiaries.

I have read that California is one of the most aggressive states. I haven't been able to verify that. Some states only collect if it is due to long term nursing care. There are other exceptions that one might qualify for.

Just saying check it out.

I think this law needs to be repealed. If you can get on the exchange then that government money is free. How is this fair?
