Maria Diamond Authors Article on Ahlborn Medicaid Expansion Repeal

In the March 2018 issue of Trial News (published by the Washington State Association for Justice), Maria Diamond authored an article outlining a part of the new Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 that repeals Medicaid’s expanded lien recovery rights, known as the Ahlborn repeal, which was effective from October 1, 2017, until February 9, 2018. As Maria states, “Ahlborn is reinstated as the law of the land. From this point forward, states cannot take more than their fair share of a Medicaid recipient’s legal settlement/award in a tort case . . . .”

“We have been Maria’s clients since the mid-1990’s and developed more than an attorney-client relationship. One of our cases resulted in the need for extensive surgery, and we struggled with our insurance to cover the cost of the initial surgery and recovery. Maria was instrumental in resolving all of these issues. Successful legal representation can only be judged by the outcome and the client’s overall satisfaction. In our case, we have been more than pleased with the results and Maria’s expertise.” Rose and David F-W
