KidsWell Partners File Amicus Brief Supporting Private Enforcement of the Medicaid Act

First Focus, NHeLP: KidsWell partners, First Focus and The National Health Law Program, along with 16 other organizations, filed an amicus brief in the Armstrong v. Exceptional Child Center case arguing that private enforcement of the Medicaid Act is necessary when state violations harm program beneficiaries. The brief argues that a decision against private enforcement would remove one of the main ways low-income individuals can legally challenge states’ harmful decisions.
