(1) Subject to the requirements of subsection (2) of this section, if 42 U.S.C. 1396p (b)(1)(B) as in effect on January 1, 1995, is repealed without replacement or is declared unconstitutional, the Director of Human Services shall limit the recovery of medical assistance paid pursuant to ORS chapter 414 from the estate of an individual or a recipient of property or other assets held by an individual at the time of death, including a surviving spouse of the individual, to the recovery of medical assistance payments paid on behalf of the individual on or after the date that the individual attained 65 years of age.

(2) The director shall limit the recovery of medical assistance as described under subsection (1) of this section only if the director determines, after receiving the written opinion of the Attorney General, that the recovery limitation will not violate any federal law in effect on the operative date of the recovery limitation. The director may condition, limit, modify or terminate any recovery limitation as the director considers necessary to avoid a violation of federal law. [1995 c.642 §2; 2001 c.900 §224]
