Checking the rules, Medi-cal advice websites say the State can and will seize the surviving spouse's residence after they pass away to pay for accrued nursing home charges. But I can't find the rules on the Internet regarding whether Cali can seize the residence if the surviving spouse has had only a life estate on the property for the last fifteen years or so. I know I should talk to an attorney about all this and no doubt I'll end up doing so but I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this.

Further research turns up "No, it can't".
