Medicaid Estate Recovery programs differ by state. There is a federal minimum, but states can go beyond. It looks like you’re in GA. You might want to call the county office to clarify whether life insurance is part of the Estate Recovery program.

Here’s an analysis by a law firm – http://www.mcguffey.net/estaterecovery.htm

Georgia DCH site with an explanation and FAQs – http://www.georgia.gov/00/channel_title/0,2094,31446711_31835571,00.html

And the regulations addressing the program – http://www.georgia.gov/vgn/images/portal/cit_1210/7/13/46190895111-3-8_estate_recovery_rules.pdf

They do address hardship waivers and transfering of assets. The law firm also explains exceptions and other items that can be paid prior to Medicaid.

Hope this helps a bit.
