“After the death of a family member are the descendants responsible for medical balances after Medicare has contributed & there are no funds remaining. Thank you.”
The short answer is, generally no. Debts are not inherited. However, Medicare can (depending on the circumstances) have a right of recovery against any assets in the decedent’s estate, which would reduce (or eliminate) any inheritance.
Also, if you were responsible for the decedent’s financial support during his or her life, that responsibility wouldn’t go away on their death. But in most circumstances, third parties aren’t financially responsible for medical expenses.
