The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Azar v. Allina Health Services, a case involving how Medicare sets rates for paying hospitals. These reimbursement payments mainly go to hospitals that treat low-income or uninsured patients. Allina Health Services, a group of non-profit hospitals, argued the new formula violates federal law because HHS did not undergo a notice and comment period. The new formula resulted in lower reimbursements for hospitals. Justice Brett Kavanaugh recused himself from this case because he heard the case while sitting on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was absent from this oral argument, due to recovery from cancer surgery.

The court ruled 7-1 on June 3, 2019 that HHS should have held a public notice and comment period prior to changing its Medicare Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) payment formula, which resulted in lower reimbursements for some hospitals. close
