I'd never heard of this item that was slipped into the latest Walker budget. I bet you hadn't, either. So now they can run up your medical bills for their profits and take it from your estate after you die, even with a surviving spouse and/or a trust. I know the GOP hates the probate process but holy cow. I can see that legislative conference now, where the hospital industry cries about how they lose money when a Medicaid recipient dies, and the GOP says not to worry, we'll just take it from their real property/spouse/trust and bypass probate court! I bet other creditors will just love this one.
