Medicaid is a state-based health insurance plan funded by federal and state sources but administered at the state level. Under federal law, the states must have a system in place to recover certain payments Medicaid made. Complicating matters is the fact that each state has its own agencies and set of laws for supporting repayment. This mix of authority means both state and federal laws can impact the settlement you’ve fought hard to negotiate.
Medicaid liens come about when an individual covered by the plan experiences an injury in an accident where liability or Workers’ Compensation applies. If the injured party later receives a settlement, the state’s Medicaid agency must pursue reimbursement of what it paid for injury-related treatment. Doing so means filing a legal claim against the settlement funds, including for an estate if it’s the party receiving financial compensation.
