BALTIMORE (AP) - More than 8,000 checks have been mailed to former patients of Johns Hopkins gynecologist Dr. Nikita Levy as part of a class-action settlement involving the secret recording of pelvic exams, but some have still not received a full payment.

The Baltimore Sun reports (https://bsun.md/2vrbL7c ) some women have received only 80 percent of their settlement award, because the trustee of the $190 million settlement fund continues to try to resolve lien issues related to Medicaid and Medicare.

Michael Lee, the chief operating officer of a Philadelphia company handling the claims, says that since June about 8,100 checks have been mailed. He says about 1,200 women received partial payments.

A total of 8,342 women were approved to receive settlement money in the case.

Levy killed himself in 2013 as police investigated.
