Darjee v. Betlach, District of Arizona

Executive Summary

Low-income immigrant residents of Arizona who were eligible for full Medicaid benefits, but whose benefits were reduced to emergency-only benefits, filed suit against the state Medicaid agency for preventing them from accessing the full scope of necessary medical care. Plaintiffs alleged that these benefit reductions violated the obligation to provide Medicaid benefits with “reasonable promptness” and constitutional due process.
