Wright v. AHCA, Second Judicial Circuit in and for Leon County, Florida

Executive Summary

Plaintiff Nancy Wright is a Florida attorney who has represented hundreds of Florida Medicaid recipients (often pro bono) who are challenging erroneous terminations, denials, or reduction of Medicaid benefits. To prepare these appeals, Attorney Wright needs to access the state Medicaid agency’s (Agency for Health Care Administration’s or AHCA’s) fair hearing orders. Florida law requires the orders be available free of charge from a searchable electronic database. However, AHCA denies that it is required to do so and insists on charging for these orders.  Wright has filed suit to compel the agency to comply with the Florida law requiring posting.
