Texas sticks by plans to deeply cut Medicaid therapy rates 

AUSTIN — A lawsuit that sought to block deep cuts in what Medicaid pays for disabled children and poor elderly Texans’ therapies has delayed the rate changes for a month but otherwise forced no change in the state’s plans.

On Wednesday morning, owners of several home health agencies who had challenged the reductions rejoiced after a Health and Human Services Commission lawyer announced in court that the agency will withdraw them.

The cuts, averaging 18 percent to 20 percent across the board for full-service home health agencies, were to take effect Tuesday.
