In most cases, if the government has paid for your medical expenses, you will have to repay the government if you receive a recovery because of your medical malpractice case.  You may, in addition, have to repay early retirement benefits or other disability benefits, but this is on a case-by-case basis.  Only an experienced medical malpractice attorney who understands which government benefits you received will be able to fully answer this question.
