Medicaid requires reimbursement from beneficiaries that settle, receive a judgment or an award related to their workers’ compensation, no-fault or liability case for related treatment that was paid by the state Medicaid program. Typically, defendants (primary plans) are not responsible to reimburse Medicaid plans for liens, but there are exceptions and it varies by state. A handful of states require defendants to take certain actions at time of settlement, judgment, award with a beneficiary to properly discharge their liability for any potential liens.

Please note the recent repeal of Murray Ryan does not impact state rights to recover Medicaid liens under state Third Party Liability (TPL) laws; only that such recoveries must be proportionate to the medical portion of the settlement established for the workers’ compensation, no-fault or liability claim.
