Court Blocks Service Cuts for Disabled

MIAMI -- A Miami-Dade County circuit judge has issued a preliminary injunction against a plan by the state Agency for Health Care Administration to slice millions of dollars in payments to facilities that serve people with developmental disabilities.
Intermediate-care facilities throughout the state filed a lawsuit Dec. 21 to try to block AHCA from moving forward with the Medicaid funding cuts. The facilities argue that AHCA improperly approved the plan and that it will hurt the quality of care provided to people with severe disabilities.
