Medicaids estate recovery program help?

On there website there isnt much information on what actually activates the MERP Program. The only thing i can find is:

“Medicaid is a mandatory program that seeks reimbursement for all long term care costs”

Does anyone know what long term care actually means? I understand hospice, or having MediCaid pay for assisted living/adult daycare.

But what’s bothering me is they include prescriptions under long term care as well.

This got me wondering. Will Medicaid Automatically enact the MERP program even if the 55+ year old person doesn’t use long term care? Examples being would the MERP program activate if a patient just uses it for basic health coverage like Preventative primary care visits, x rays, lab screenings, etc…

Anyone familiar with this? My grandma is increasingly worried her house will get taken away from her when she passes. Thankfully for now she doesn’t need and hasn’t used any Long term Care benefits. She’s just used Medicaid for doctor visits, prescription heart medicine, and blood works.

Currently i live in the state of California so it would be Medi-CAL
