Rebecca Novick Advocates for Consistency in Benefits Cases

Former Fellow Rebecca Novick (’08), an attorney for The Legal Aid Society, was quoted in a Politico article about New York City’s Human Resources Administration’s investigations of income or residency discrepancies related to Medicaid benefits. (“HRA Ensnaring Low-Income, Immigrant New Yorkers in Dubious Medicaid Probes,” Oct. 16). “We certainly see a lot of cases where the person is eligible or eligible for part of the time, where it seems like it’s a very uninformed investigation,” reported Rebecca. “The consequence on the back end is so devastating.”
