On December 26, 2013, President Obama signed the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013. Section 202
of the Act is entitled “Strengthening Medicaid Third-Party Liability.” The new law amends
portions of the federal Medicaid Act in an attempt to override the application of the allocation
theory derived from Arkansas Dept. of Health & Human Srvs. v. Ahlborn, 547 U.S. 268 (2006).
There are three main amendments to the statutes which take effect on October 1, 2014.
