From the DULUTH NEWS TRIBUNE: Scott Killerud was about to throw away a mailing about the 2016 enrollment period for MNsure last November when something caught his eye. "Just as I was going to drop it in the trash, I was like - wait a second. What did I just read?" the Pine County farmer said. What caught his eye was a notification that if you're 55 or older and on Medical Assistance - Minnesota's version of Medicaid - the state places an estate claim with which to recover its costs after you and your spouse have died.
