  • Handling Funds Following the Death of a Medicaid Eligible Resident

    Wednesday August 20, 2014

    ALERT Nursing Home Providers

    Regarding

    Handling Funds Following the Death of a Medicaid - Eligible Resident

    The purpose of this alert is to clarify the procedures associated with handling  funds following
    the death of a Medicaid-eligible nursing home resident. 42 CFR ยง 483.10(c)(6), the Medicaid Administrative Code 560-X-10.-14(3)(f) and 560-X-22-.25(5)(e) and the Social Security Administration Guide for Representative Payees require that nursing homes, upon the death of a resident, release any funds being held at the facility in the resident's name to the individual or probate jurisdiction designated to administer the deceased resident's estate.

    Attached to this alert is a newly developed Administrator of Estate Designation Form which will provide a resident the opportunity to designate who should receive the remaining personal funds. Upon the death of the resident, the completed form in the patient's record will allow a nursing home facility to turn over any remaining funds to the designated Administrator of the Estate.

    See attached document for complete ALERT and Administrator of Estate Designation Form.
