NC Federal District Court Upholds State's Medicaid Lien Statute
A federal district court in North Carolina was asked to grant summary judgment against Armstrong's claims that North Carolina Medicaid's assignment and subrogation statutes violates the Ahlborn holding. Armstrong argued that the NC Supreme Court's holding in Andrews v. Haygood was incorrect. The U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina granted the state's motion for summary judgment after concluding that the North Carolina Supreme Court correctly determined that the North Carolina reimbursement statutes are consistent with federal Medicaid law as construed by Ahlborn.
