Webinar Replay: Breaking Down the Armstrong Ruling and What It Means

Watch Now

On April 30, 2015, HMA Information Services hosted the webinar, “Implications of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Ruling in Armstrong v. Exceptional Child Center: A Real-world Analysis.”

The U.S. Supreme Court recently limited the ability of healthcare providers to file lawsuits against state Medicaid programs over the adequacy of provider payment rates. The court’s decision in Armstrong v. Exceptional Child Center is good news for states looking to rein in Medicaid costs. But many fear it will be bad news for Medicaid beneficiaries, who may struggle to find access to quality care if providers refuse to participate in the program because of insufficient payment rates. Enforcement of Medicaid’s promise to provide high-quality health care to the poor now falls largely in the lap of CMS, whose enforcement tools may not be up to the task.

During this webinar, our presenters provided an analysis of the possible real-world implications of this decision – for providers, beneficiaries, states and Medicaid managed care plans.

Speakers included:

Meghan Linvill McNab, J.D., Krieg DeVault
Leah Mannweiler, J.D., Partner, Krieg DeVault
Kathy Gifford, J.D., Managing Principal, Health Management Associates
Catherine Rudd, J.D., Senior Consultant, Health Management Associates
