Medicaid recipients who win malpractice suits currently aren’t entitled to all the compensation. In this case, North Carolina feels it should be able to stake a claim on a portion of the awards for the malpractice suit to help mitigate the cost of running the Medicaid program. What’s your take? Does the family who experiences hardship deserve all the money, or should the state be entitled to a portion?
