Groups: High Court Should Decline State Medicaid Case
A group representing Medicaid providers nationwide has sent a letter to acting Solicitor General Neal Kumar KatyalÂ arguing that the U.S. Supreme Court should not take up a California case involving Medicaid payment reductions in the state. The organizations wrote that the decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to blockÂ the state'sÂ 10% across-the-board cut to Medi-Cal providers "is consistent with decades of Supreme Court precedent." Medi-Cal is California's Medicaid program.
