Andersen v. Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri

Petition for certiorari denied on December 10, 2018

Linked with:

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
17-1340 10th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2018

Issue: Whether the provisions of the Medicaid Act that require participating states to include in their plans the ability of eligible individuals to obtain services from any “qualified” provider, 42 U.S.C. § 1396a(a)(23), but grant states broad authority to exclude providers for violating state or federal requirements, 42 U.S.C. § 1396a(p), indicate that Congress clearly and unambiguously intended to create an implied private right of action to challenge a state’s determination that a provider is not “qualified” under the applicable state regulations.
