Issue: Whether the government is entitled to full reimbursement under the Medicare Secondary Payer Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1395y(b), when a beneficiary compromises a tort or other claim and recovers a reduced amount, as the court of appeals held here, or whether the government, like its beneficiary, is entitled to only a proportionate recovery, as the Eleventh Circuit has held.
