§ 40-8-9.1 Notice.
Whenever an individual who is receiving medical assistance under this chapter transfers an interest in real or personal property, such individual shall notify the executive office of health and human services within ten (10) days of the transfer. Such notice shall be sent to the individual's local office and the legal office of the executive office of health and human services and include, at a minimum, the individual's name, social security number or, if different, the executive office of health and human services identification number, the date of transfer and the dollar value, if any, paid or received by the individual who received benefits under this chapter. In the event an individual fails to provide notice required by this section to the executive office of health and human services and in the event an individual has received medical assistance, any individual and/or entity, who knew or should have known that such individual failed to provide such notice and who receives any distribution of value as a result of the transfer, shall be liable to the executive office of health and human services to the extent of the value of the transfer. Moreover, any such individual shall be subject to the provisions of § 40-6-15 and any remedy provided by applicable state and federal laws and rules and regulations. Failure to comply with the notice requirements set forth in the section shall not affect the marketability of title to real estate transferred, while the transferor is receiving medical assistance.
