Editorial: SCOTUS Made ‘Wise’ Ruling in Medicaid Reimbursement Rates Case
A Sacramento Bee editorial argues that the U.S. Supreme Court "was wise to rule that private parties have no standing to sue the government to force higher payments to medical providers under the federal-state Medicaid program, known as Medi-Cal in California." The editorial adds, "The political process can be messy, and it does not always turn out the way we'd like, even on the issue of reimbursement levels for medical care. But these are decisions that are best made by the elected representatives of the people, not the courts."
