Michigan’s Medicaid Drug Plan Is Upheld

From Times Wire Reports

In a case that could affect millions of Medicaid patients, a federal judge ruled that Michigan can continue a prescription drug program that requires doctors to use a list of discounted drugs when treating low-income patients who get state aid.

U.S. District Judge John Bates dismissed the claims of drug companies and mental health advocates, who said Michigan acted illegally by proceeding with its program without the full approval of Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy G. Thompson.
