Federal trial will decide changes in Florida's child Medicaid program

Miami Herald, December 7, 2009

A federal trial that begins Dec. 7 in Miami could effect the medical care of 1.4 million Florida children. In a class-action lawsuit filed four years ago, disabled, or impoverished children whose healthcare bill is paid for by Medicaid claim they must endure long waits or long drives to find doctors or dentists who accept the insurance plan. They argue their medical care is at times so poor that it violates federal law.
