AHA, Hospitals Oppose the Secretary Motion for Extension of Time to Reply

July 5, 2018 - PLAINTIFFS’ OPPOSITION TO DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR AN EXTENSION OF TIME

Plaintiffs oppose the Department of Health and Human Services’s (HHS) motion for a six-week extension to file its response to Plaintiffs’ remedy proposals. HHS asserts that the extension is necessary primarily to compile additional data from the end of the most recent fiscal quarter. But the Court stayed the case for 90 days precisely so that HHS could compile this information; an additional six weeks is uncalled for now. And HHS’s other proffered justifications do not warrant six weeks of additional delay in this already stale case.
