More than 83 million people access Medicaid services, many of whom are elderly or disabled and using Medicaid resources to fund their residence in a long-term care facility. If you or a loved one are one of these people, you may be interested in the recent case being argued before the Supreme Court last week. In Health & Hosp. Corp. of Marion City, Ind. v. Talevski, the Court will determine whether people who depend on Medicaid or similar programs will be allowed to sue states when their rights are violated.
