Jahi McMath – Now Alive and on Medicaid

On Friday, the family of Jahi McMath filed its opposition to the demurrers of the medical provider defendants.  In its brief, the family states two remarkable things: 

1.  “Plaintiffs allege, and will present proof of changes and developments which show that Jahi’s condition is one in which Jahi has brain function and is indeed a living person.”

2.  “To this date, Jahi continues to receive 24/7 nursing care in New Jersey, pursuant to her eligibility in that state for participation in the New Jersey Medicaid Program.”
