Schoharie County Court Hon. Judge Bartlett Schoharie County Commissioner: Brady: 0Schoharie County Attorney : Frank Tedeschi County officials go after elderly man after 10 years of his mothers death to reimburse medicaid nursing home fees; first agreement of 45,000 dollars, no lien on previous house, but now Schoharie county has put a 100,000 judgement against their house in South Carolina Schoharie New York
Is it legal to go after someone after 10 years to get reimbursed for medicaid expenditures while someone was in a nursing home? To repay a debt is all fine and dandy, however Schoharie county let this debt go for ten years before contacting the next of kin. There were properties listed in the Mom's name that were turned over to the son.
Schoharie county never alerted mehat there were monies due to the county? - until about 10 years after mom had died. There were no liens on the houses. I sold my houses - one in Summit and the other in Richmondville - both with a clean bill of sale. Then Schoharie county tells me I should have known there was money owed to them (Specifically Judge Bartlett). (Did Schoharie county or the State of New York medicaid cover the costs?) Either way - since the Judge told me there was no alternative that the money was owed and that's that - we agreed to a 45,000 lien on my house that I bought in South Carolina. Since I am dying with cancer, my wife and I are sick over the fact that we just found out that Schoharie county put a 100,000 dollar lien against my house in South Carolina.
How is this possible? We have court papers with agreeance of 45,000 - and now they say $100,000? Does that mean that the Judge, the Commissioner and the Attorney get to split and pocket the difference? I suppose that there isn't any statue of limitations on getting their reimbursement, but why did they wait 10 years to identify there was money owed, number one and number two, how can there be a court agreement of 45,000 to be paid back and a lien for $100,000? Is there any checks and balance or recourse of action that I can take? This seems wrong to me and I'm sure I'm not the only person this has heppened to in this County.
