Access & Coverage | Tea Leaves
  • A lawsuit filed against Florida health officials Tuesday marks the first legal challenge to how states are dropping some enrollees from program rolls after the end of a pandemic-era policy that protected coverage. Three Floridians, including two children, claim the state illegally cut their Medicaid coverage by not providing adequate information and denying them the opportunity for a pre-termination hearing. The filing asks a federal court for a permanent injunction to require the state to stop terminating Medicaid for enrollees in Florida until “adequate notice and an opportunity for a pre-termination fair hearing has been provided.” (Articles herehere, and here)
