***The Trust is currently processing Future Tort Claim submissions.
***For personal injury claimants (Category A and Category D claimants), Medicare and/or Medicaid may have a reimbursement claim against your settlement proceeds if they paid for healthcare services relating to your injury, and therefore Medicare and Medicaid resolution is required. The first step in that process is determining whether you were entitled to Medicare and/or Medicaid. Even if you did not have Medicare or Medicaid coverage, the Trust still must check with Medicare and Medicaid to confirm that you did not have coverage.
If you had Medicare or Medicaid coverage, you will not be eligible to receive payment until the Tort Claims Trust resolves any reimbursement obligations that you have as a result of your coverage, which can take additional time.
***All counsel: If you have not done so already, please ensure that the Trust has your correct email address, street address, and phone number by emailing the information to the Trust at email@example.com.
