Ruling Could Impact Those with Disabilities

RALEIGH, N.C. -- A ruling by a federal District Court judge could have statewide implications for North Carolina residents affected by developmental disabilities.
Judge Louise Flanagan said Thursday that a managed-care organization, Piedmont Behavioral Healthcare (PBH), did not properly alert about 700 residents about significant changes to the services they would receive.
The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services was listed as a defendant because it oversees PBH and other managed-care organizations.
