The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration denied Medicaid reimbursement to ResCare, an operator of intermediate care facilities for people with intellectual disabilities, for over-the-counter drugs prescribed to its residents by doctors. The Marion Superior Court denied ResCare’s petition for judicial review and declined ResCare’s alternative request for declaratory judgment on whether it could charge the cost of these drugs to its residents’ personal fund accounts. The Court of Appeals affirmed. ResCare Health Services, Inc. v. Indiana Family and Social Services Administration - Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning, 169 N.E.3d 864 (Ind. Ct. App. 2021), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted transfer and assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
