Notwithstanding AS 47.55.080 and 47.55.090, upon the death of an Alaska Pioneers' Home or Alaska Veterans' Home resident or of a recipient of day care or respite services, a state claim for unpaid debt owed to the home may be satisfied only out of the decedent's estate. The state may not pursue a claim to the extent doing so would work undue hardship, as determined by the department by regulation, on the surviving spouse or dependent of the decedent. Family portraits and heirlooms of the type identified under AS 09.38.020 (a)(3), without regard to value, may not be taken by the state in satisfaction of a debt to the home.
