On March 16, the Wisconsin Supreme Court cancelled oral arguments for Papa v. DHS, originally scheduled for March 18th, citing COVID 19 concerns. Oral argument will be rescheduled at a later date and time.
Papa v. DHS involves a challenge to DHS’s recoupment policies of pre-approved payments made to Medicaid providers. DHS demanded hundreds of thousands of dollars back from Medicaid providers who failed to follow detailed, prescriptive documentation requirements that were never promulgated as a rule or guidance.
