Associated Press, December 3, 2009
Florida has spent about $2 million defending a class-action lawsuit that claims the state is violating federal Medicaid requirements by providing inadequate medical and dental care to more than a million children. The case, scheduled for trial in mid December, claims 390,000 children did not get a medical checkup in 2007 and more than 750,000 received no dental care, the Associated Press reports.
