Notice to Class of Proposed Settlement of Franklin v. Kinsley.

Franklin et al. v. Kinsley, formerly known as Hawkins et al. v. Cohen, is a federal lawsuit filed in 2017. This case was certified by the Court as a class action lawsuit on behalf of N.C. Medicaid beneficiaries.

In this lawsuit, the Plaintiffs allege that the N.C. Medicaid agency, along with county Departments of Social Services (DSS), was terminating and reducing Medicaid benefits without considering eligibility under all Medicaid categories and without first providing timely and adequate written notice, in violation of federal Medicaid statute and the U.S. Constitution. The Defendant denied those allegations.

The Court has ordered that class members be notified of the proposed Settlement Agreement. This notice contains important information regarding details of the Settlement Agreement:

  • Where the full Settlement Agreement can be found for review
  • Beneficiary rights to object the lawsuit dismissal.
