Lawsuit Targets State On Medicaid Reviews

A potential class-action lawsuit filed this week alleges Florida did not properly determine whether Medicaid beneficiaries could continue qualifying for coverage after initially losing eligibility for the health-care program.
The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in federal court in Jacksonville against the Florida Department of Children and Families and the state Agency for Health Care Administration.

It names as plaintiffs Clayton Harrell, a former foster child who received Medicaid benefits through an adoption-assistance program, and Austin Trueblood, who has Down syndrome and received Medicaid benefits because he qualified for Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, through the U.S. Social Security Administration.
