California Hosp. Ass'n v. Maxwell-Jolly, A124098

In plaintiff's petition for writ of mandate challenging the manner in which the Department of Health Care Services (Department) has been paying hospitals that operate distinct part nursing facilities under California's Medicaid program, trial court's denial of the petition is reversed where: 1) plaintiff has standing to enforce the Department's duties under state and federal law to the extent such duties are clearly and presently compelled by such laws; 2) the Department did neither of the requirements under 30(A) with respect to the exclusionary methodology; 3) the Department's decision to freeze Medi-Cal reimbursement rates based solely on state budgetary concerns violated federal law; and 4) any error by the trial court in considering extra-record evidence was harmless.
