District of Columbia, Civil Action No. 93-452 (TSC) (D.D.C.).
On September 2, 2005, in the Salazar case, the Court approved and entered the Order Setting Reimbursement Procedures for Medicaid Beneficiaries Enrolled with a DC Medicaid Managed Care Organization. The Order sets the procedure for the MCOs to make and communicate to their enrollees determinations on reimbursement claims that are submitted by an MCO enrollee to the MCO directly, or to the Recipient Claims Research Team at the Department of Health Care Finance (DHCF).
