If I establish a Pooled Medicaid Payback Trust and choose to support the grant program by leaving any remaining trust funds to Community Fund Ohio, will the Beneficiary still need to pay back Medicaid?

November 13, 2020

Federal and Ohio law allow any trust funds remaining after the Beneficiary’s death to be retained by Community Fund Ohio and not used to repay Medicaid. However, this does not stop Medicaid from pursuing other assets. If you have questions about an obligation to repay Medicaid after the Beneficiary’s death, please consult an attorney. Community Fund Ohio does not provide legal advice.
