The Moneyist: My only son has a brain tumor — how I can make sure the government doesn’t garnish his inheritance for medical bills?

Dear Moneyist,

My only son was diagnosed with a brain tumor, back in 2014. He underwent a 21-hour brain surgery and, thank God, he survived.

Prior to this he was listed in my will to inherit everything, at my passing. His insurance at the time of this nightmare was Connecticut’s Husky D Plan. It’s basically Medicaid.

After speaking with many attorneys, I was advised to remove my son from my will for the time being because, should I pass before restructuring my will, the state of Connecticut could take everything to repay themselves for my son’s medical costs.

How should I structure my will, to be able to leave everything to my only son and protect that inheritance from the state of Connecticut?
