Estate Recovery will be delayed until after the death of the surviving spouse, if any, and if; a) There is a child under 21 years of age; or
b) There is a blind or totally and permanently disabled child in the home. In the case of liens placed on the home, recovery will be delayed
until after the death of the surviving spouse, if any, and if: a) A sibling is lawfully living in the home and was lawfully residing continuously
in the home for at least one year immediately prior to the claimant being admitted to the medical institution; or If there is a son or daughter of
the Medicaid recipient who is and has been residing in the home for at least two years immediately before the date of the individual’s admission to
the institution, and has been residing there on a continuous basis since that time. The son or daughter would have to establish to the Alabama Medicaid
Agency’s satisfaction that they were providing care which permitted the individual to reside at home rather than in a medical institution.
