An expedited appeal for the 1115 Medicaid work experiment cases
from Health Affairs
On April 19th, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia granted the Trump administration's request for an expedited appeal in Gresham v Azar and Stewart v Azar. In both cases, the United States District Court concluded that the HHS Secretary had acted unlawfully in approving Medicaid 1115 experiments that impose multiple eligibility restrictions such as premiums, added reporting, lengthy lockout periods for non-compliance, loss of retroactive eligibility, and what the administration terms "community engagement." All briefing is to be completed by August 1, with oral arguments in the consolidated cases not later than October 1, 2019.
