Justices allow docs to re-argue CA Medicaid case
The Supreme Court on Wednesday kept alive the possibility that California doctors, pharmacists and senior citizens can challenge the state's Medicaid reimbursement cuts. But the closely divided court didn't definitively side with the doctors. Instead, citing the complexity of the cases and some changed circumstances, justices ordered more arguments before a lower appellate court. The 5-4 decision kicks the set of California Medicaid reimbursement cases back to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which had sided with the doctors, pharmacists and senior citizens.
