County of Chemung v. Shah, Court of Appeals, 2016 Slip Opinion 07043

In response to claims filed by municipalities that the State consider and pay claims submitted after the effective date of the legislative deadline for pre-2006 Medicaid reimbursement claims mandated by §61 of the 2012 amendment to the Medicaid Cap Statute, the Court of Appeals held that reimbursement claims filed after April 1, 2012.

Further, said the court, the State was not required to initiate an administrative review of its records to identify and pay for any pre-2006 claims submitted by a municipality.
