Texas Medicaid Plan Must Get HHS Ruling by March 25, Court Says

The federal health agency has until March 25 to rule on three proposed Medicaid payment programs in Texas or it could face sanctions, a district court ruled.

The order from the U.S. District Court for Eastern District of Texas arose from a larger struggle between Texas and the CMS over the shape of state’s Medicaid program, which provides health coverage to low-income people.

Texas is fighting to preserve a 10-year extension of special Medicaid rules that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services approved near the end of President Donald Trump’s term in office.
