Intestate /medicare / repayment?

by Tdubs
(New york city)

Do the heirs of an intestate person with no kids and no spouse, have to pay medicare back? I know they will have to pay medicaid back, but medicare? What about hospital bills that may not have been covered by medicare or medicaid? is that even possible? Or does medicaid pay it all in the hopes of getting it back when the person passes away?
Thanks
