Are assets my spouse inherits disregarded for eligibility purposes when I apply for Medi-Cal? For the purpose of estate recovery?

In the case of an inheritance, the assets disregarded for determining eligibility are the same as those in a pre-nuptial agreement. The estate recovery program can only file claims against the assets that pass from deceased Medi-Cal beneficiaries to their surviving spouses upon death. Any assets that pass to the surviving spouse before the death of the Medi-Cal beneficiary are not recoverable.
