Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
22-534 7th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issues: (1) Whether spending clause legislation, including 42 U.S.C. § 1396u-2(f), can impliedly create private rights enforceable under 42 U.S.C. § 1983; and (2) whether, if so, Section 1936u-2(f)’s requirement that states include a clause requiring timely payment pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1396a(a)(37)(A) in their contracts with managed care organizations unambiguously gives states a statutory duty, not just a contractual right, to ensure that those organizations pay providers in accordance with that contract provision, and also unambiguously gives providers a private right to enforce that duty.
