Update on Universal Settlement

Esq. Stephen B. Hanse in Finance & Reimbursement

The State has distributed the third installment of the Universal Settlement to the Payment Trustees for distribution. Our General Counsel, Neil Murray of O’Connell and Aronowitz, Payment Trustee for most all NYSHFA member facilities, has indicated that he anticipates having the first wave of checks issued and in the mail by close of business on Friday, October 13, 2017. Please note that many facilities will be receiving a second check later for additional amounts that will be forthcoming from the law firms that represented them and to whom checks are being issued to cover their fees, with the remaining balance then being forwarded on to facilities.

If member facilities have any questions, please contact Neil Murray and/or his assistant, Becky Lyman, at (518) 462-5601 and/or the attorneys that represented them in the litigation that was settled as part of the Universal Settlement.
