Maine Sues Over Delayed Medicaid Waiver

The state can't afford the coverage the feds require

|

The state of Maine is suing the federal government for failing to act on its waiver request filed Aug. 1 seeking to eliminate Medicaid coverage for more than 20,000 residents.

The state, which sued Tuesday in federal court, had warned that it needed a quick answer, but the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services told the state Friday that more time was needed to review the state's waiver request.
