Is Court Approval Required to Settle a Minor's Claim in Florida?

In Florida, the TV advertising lawyers talk a lot about settling cases. What you do not hear much about is whether, or when, settlement of a case must be approved by a court. Attorneys handling probate matters often are asked to assist in getting court approval when it is required.

Medicaid Claims Against a Florida Estate

As is commonly known, Medicaid is a federal program which provides healthcare benefits to certain persons with low income. The program is administered at the state level. Section 1917 of the Federal Social Security Act (42 USC § 1396(p)), and 42 CFR 433.36, require that States recover medical assistance payments made to, or on behalf of, a Medicaid recipient from the assets in the estate of that deceased recipient.
