We're suing the State
Attorneys from Legal Council for Health Justice, the Shriver Center, and Sidley Austin LLP filed in court on behalf of thousands of low-income people to enforce federal law and the State of Illinois’ agreement to process Medicaid applications in a timely fashion. The attorneys charge that the State is violating both federal law and an Illinois court order by significantly delaying Medicaid applications and denying residents access to health coverage.
CHILD HEALTH & BORDER SEPARATIONS
Law professor Yael Cannon, director of the Medical-Legal Partnership at Georgetown Law’s Health Justice Alliance Law Clinic in DC, reflects on how child health is being negatively impacted by border separations
