Estate Recovery Program

About the Estate Recovery Program

The estate recovery program enables the commonwealth to recover from the estate of individuals who were 55 years of age or older at the time nursing facility services or home and community-based services were received. Recovery applies to Medical Assistance payments provided on or after August 15, 1994, the effective date of the Act. The commonwealth shall recover the amount of Medical Assistance paid for all nursing facility services, home and community-based services, and related hospital and prescription services.

TPL Web Portal

In April 2016, the Department of Human Services (DHS) launched the Third Party Liability (TPL) Web Portal, which allowed users to submit a request online.

In a continuing effort to enhance and improve functionality, effective April 12, 2017, all Web Portal users will be required to register as a business partner.  Registration requires the entry of a valid Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN).  Unregistered business partners will no longer be able to access the Web Portal effective April 12, 2017.

To sign up for a Business Partner account, please click here.

Once registered, your agency's administrator will be able to approve or deny access to others in your agency by clicking here.

***The first individual to register under your FEIN will become your organization's "administrator."  Please refer to the below registration guide for further information.***

Once you have registered with the TPL Web Portal, you will be able to submit claims on your personal dashboard by clicking here.
