Supreme Court Denies Review Of 7th Circuit Indiana Medicaid Dental Care Dispute

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Supreme Court on April 22 denied a writ of certiorari to the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration's appeal of a federal appeals court decision requiring the state Medicaid agency to cover all "medically necessary" dental care. The Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Sept. 26 affirmed a federal court order granting a class of Medicaid plaintiffs from Indiana preliminary injunctive relief in their challenge of the state's cap on "medically necessary" dental care under the state's Medicaid program (Sandra M. Bontrager, et al., v. Indiana Family and Social Services Administration, et al., No. 12-1037, U.S. Sup.).
