Bread for the City Case Update: District Will Not Implement Requirements Any Sooner Than July 17, 2006
Washington, D.C. – June 30, 2006: Crowell & Moring is pleased to report a recent development in the lawsuit filed yesterday on behalf of Bread for the City and other individuals against the District of Columbia to halt the implementation of new Medicaid citizenship documentation requirements. Today, all parties voluntarily reached agreement that the District will not implement the requirements of Section 6036 of the Deficit Reduction Act any sooner than July 17, 2006.
The lawsuit aims to enjoin the District from applying new requirements prompted by the federal government that could terminate Medicaid benefits for thousands of U.S. citizens in the District who cannot produce specific forms of paperwork to prove their birth in the country.
