The Indiana Supreme Court has granted transfer to a case in which the Indiana Court of Appeals ordered a state agency to pay a long-term care facility after the agency terminated its contract with the facility.
In Randall L. Woodruff, Trustee, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, on behalf of Legacy Healthcare, Inc., d/b/a New Horizon Developmental Center v. Indiana Family and Social Services Administration, Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning, Nos. 29S02-1110-PL-598, 29A02-1002-PL-220, the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration appeals the COA ruling. After the FSSA terminated its contract with New Horizon due to poor conditions, the appeals court held that the FSSA had to pay New Horizon for the costs of caring for Medicaid patients after termination of the contract, but before the facility entered receivership.
The Supreme Court declined to accept 20 cases for the week ending Oct. 7, with all justices concurring except for Justice Brent Dickson, who voted to grant transfer in Edward Shaffer v. Wells Fargo Bank, National Association as Trustee for the Holders of the First Franklin Mortgage Loan Trust 2006-FF17, Mortgage Pass Through Certificates, Series 2006-FF17, No. 49A05-1007-MF-452.
