NEW: 9th Circuit Says Arizona's Medicaid Program Can't Categorically Refuse To Reimburse Community Health Centers For Adult Chiropractic Services (READ Opinion)

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals cracked the case today. In so doing Arizona's Community Health Centers won a battle against the state's AHCCCS system when the 9th Circuit ruled that Arizona's Medicaid program cannot categorically refuse to cover chiropractic services for adults.

The unanimous Opinion REVERSES the lower court's decision to dismiss that part of the health centers' lawsuit. District Court Judge Jennifer Zipps also must further look at AHCCCS' exclusion of some dental, podiatry and optometry services.
