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 . . . .”

“My daughter was injured during birth when a catheter punctured my womb. She suffered from a loss of blood, and several other mistakes were made before she was finally resuscitated. My mother, who is a nurse, suggested Judy Massong. With her as my attorney, I felt I was in the most experienced hands. With Judy's help, we settled twice, once with the hospital and again with the medical device manufacturer. Judy is as strong as a bulldog, and she always made it her goal to keep us informed and help us find the resolution we needed as a family. We have worked hard on my daughter’s recovery, and as challenging as it can be, she is an affectionate, loving, social, bright little girl.” Julie L.
