When are the citizens of the United States going to wake up?
I have spent hours attempting to find the language of the law pertaining to the Medi-Cal Estate Recovery program, which is contained within the California Code of Regulations. The specific sections referred to in numerous publications do not seem to be available online (at least I couldn’t find them), and I am wondering if it is because the state and/or federal agencies simply do not want people to know what they are getting into when they apply for Medi-Cal.
Our government has passed laws mandating that everyone have health insurance, whether or not they desire it and whether or not they can afford it. If you meet the “broadened criteria,” you can easily obtain Medi-Cal. You are even allowed to “spend down” assets in order to qualify. What the government does not clearly spell out for you at the time of application is this: Upon your death, after the age of 55, the government automatically has a lien against any and all of your assets for the full amount of any services provided to you by Medi-Cal.
Many people are being forced into the Medi-Cal program. If you accept Medi-Cal coverage, you or your estate must pay back the value of those medical services, either before or after your death. If you qualify but do not accept Medi-Cal coverage, you will be penalized monetarily. This is the law of the land.
Bottom line: The government is exercising a grab of your property and your individual rights. Isn’t this why our forefathers broke away from England? We wanted our individual rights and the ability to own and keep our own property. America is letting the government take away the very things we fought so hard to obtain and protect.
Wake up America.
