HSE and Brian M. Feldman, partner and chair of the firm’s Government and Internal Investigations practice group, were recently featured in numerous media outlets, including the New York Law Journal, Bloomberg Law, Reuters, Law360, and Law Street Media regarding a precedent-setting ruling by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. In the decision, the court ruled that a group of long-term care facilities in New York State can proceed in federal district court to challenge a final administrative rule from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that the plaintiffs believe directly violates the federal Medicaid Act.
As quoted in Law360 and Reuters, Feldman stated “This is a significant victory for health care organizations,” he continued, “This precedent-setting decision opens the door for health care organizations to protect themselves, with pre-enforcement lawsuits, from rulemaking that violates Medicaid Act provisions.”
In addition, Feldman, who argued the plaintiff’s appeal before the Second Circuit, said in the New York Law Journal, “We are pleased with the Second Circuit’s fidelity to the text of the Medicaid Act and look forward to getting to the merits of this case.”
