3 Guardians Drop Idaho Medicaid Lawsuit

BOISE, Idaho -- Three guardians for developmentally disabled Idaho residents have dropped their lawsuit against the state over Medicaid changes.
Russell and Sandra Knapp and Jana Shultz last year sued Idaho Department of Health and Welfare Director Richard Armstrong and Medicaid Administrator Leslie Clement, saying the department's plan to consolidate some Medicaid-covered services would violate their wards' right to freely choose their own health care providers.
But the Knapps and Shultz decided to drop the lawsuit last week, because the consolidation was being implemented faster than the lawsuit could work its way through the court system.
