The ruling was issued on June 29, 2018. The Court invalidated the federal approval of the Kentucky HEALTH 1115 Medicaid waiver.

The Court concluded that in approving the waiver, the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) had failed to consider the impact of Kentucky HEALTH on Medicaid coverage . . .
