The City of New York confirmed today that it will waive all 9/11-related Medicaid and public assistance liens for those plaintiffs who agree to settle their claims against the City and its Contractors pursuant to the now-pending Settlement Agreement. This is in addition to the City's prior release of certain Workers' Compensation liens for those clients who opt-in to the settlement. Plaintiffs' attorney Paul J. Napoli noted, "This is great news. The City's waiver today results in a greater net recovery for some plaintiffs and those plaintiffs who are receiving Medicaid and public assistance benefits from the City no longer have to worry that the City may be reimbursed with a portion of their settlement award." Absent today's waiver, the City would be entitled to reimbursement for the expenses it incurred relating to the plaintiffs' 9/11 injuries.
