Supreme Court sends California Medicaid case back to 9th Circuit
Posted: February, 2012
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court on Wednesday kept alive the possibility that California doctors, pharmacists and senior citizens can challenge the state's Medicaid reimbursement cuts.
But the closely divided court didn't definitively side with the doctors. Instead, citing the complexity of the cases and some changed circumstances, justices ordered more arguments before a lower appellate court.
"It may be that not all of the considerations that may bear upon resolution of the issue have been presented," Justice Stephen Breyer wrote for the majority.
