My grandmother died 10 years ago and a lawyer said she owe Medicaid. A will was not discovered and the 3 surviving children are now deceased except for one. What is the status with medicaid after such a long time?

In Missouri, a creditor has a year after the date of death to seek an estate to be opened, to make their claim. If there is any assets still in her name, they could pass to her heirs. They would be the folks that were alive when she passed. If some of her kids died after her, their heirs would be entitled to that portion.
You should consult directly with a probate attorney in your area.
