DOJ and OCR Complaints: Complaints Filed Against Medicaid Programs in DC and Texas

Executive Summary

The National Health Law Program (NHeLP), together with Disability Rights DC at University Legal Services (DRDC) and Disability Rights Texas (DRTx), filed two separate complaints with the Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in the Medicaid renewal processes in both the District of Columbia and the State of Texas. While the complaints cite distinct issues, advocates in DC and Texas allege that the Medicaid programs have failed to provide equal access to coverage for people with disabilities and that they have not met their affirmative obligations to ensure the Medicaid renewal process would be inclusive of people with disabilities during the nationwide Medicaid coverage unwinding.
