Case Summary

On November 23, 2015, five Texas Planned Parenthoods (provider plaintiffs) and ten Medicaid patients of Planned Parenthood (patient plaintiffs) filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. The plaintiffs sued the Executive Commissioner and the Inspector General of the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) under 42 U.S.C. § 1983.

On November 23, 2015, five Texas Planned Parenthoods (provider plaintiffs) and ten Medicaid patients of Planned Parenthood (patient plaintiffs) filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. The plaintiffs sued the Executive Commissioner and the Inspector General of the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The plaintiffs, represented by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, asked the court for class action certification; declaratory judgments; temporary, preliminary, and permanent injunctions; and attorney's fees. The plaintiffs claimed that HHSC had violated the Medicaid Act and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment by barring the provider plaintiffs from the Medicaid program.

Specifically, the plaintiffs explained that on October 21, 2015, the HHSC notified the provider plaintiffs that HHSC would soon terminate the Provider Plaintiffs' Medicaid Provider Agreement. The HHSC justified the termination using false allegations, which were primarily based on misleading videos leaked by anti-choice activists.

The HHSC claimed that the case was premature because they had not yet terminated the provider plaintiffs' Medicaid Provider Agreement. On January 27, 2016, U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks stayed the case pending a final termination letter. For nearly a year, the case lay relatively dormant. In this time, Texas and the U.S. Congress conducted separate investigations into the allegations against Planned Parenthood raised by the misleading videos. Planned Parenthood was repeatedly found free of wrongdoing. Nonetheless, on December 20, 2016, HHSC sent a final Notice of Termination to each provider plaintiff.

On January 17, 2017, the plaintiffs filed an amended complaint outlining the events since the order to stay the case. That day the court held a hearing on the plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction to prevent termination. On January 19, 2017, Judge Sparks entered an order temporarily enjoining the defendants from terminating the provider plaintiffs' Medicaid Provider Agreements until February 21, 2017.

On February 21, 2017, Judge Sparks granted the plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction, enjoining the defendants from terminating the Provider Plaintiffs' Medicaid Provider Agreements. The defendants appealed the preliminary injunction.

The plaintiffs then moved to withdraw their motion for class certification, which the court granted without prejudice on March 24, 2017.

On March 30, 2017, the defendants submitted an appeal regarding the order granting the plaintiff’s preliminary motion to the Fifth Circuit.

The Fifth Circuit vacated the preliminary injunction and remanded the case to the district court on January 17, 2019. 913 F.3d 551. The panel determined that while the individual plaintiffs had a private right of action, the district court erred by failing to defer to agency's findings, by accepting evidence beyond agency record and by conducting de novo review. Judge Jones wrote a concurrence urging a rehearing en banc to reconsider whether the individual plaintiffs did have a private right of action on behalf of Medicaid patients to challenge the termination of their providers’ contracts.

The defendants filed a petition for rehearing en banc on January 31, 2019. The next day, the defendants filed a petition to stay the district court’s preliminary injunction pending the rehearing, which was granted on February 4, 2019. 914 F.3d 994.

On February 4, 2019, the en banc court granted rehearing on the court’s own motion, therefore appellants’ petition for rehearing en banc filed on January 31, 2019, was denied as moot. 914 F.3d 994.

The same day, the plaintiffs submitted an opposition to the defendants' stay application. In the alternative, the plaintiffs requested to defer the effective date in order to seek a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction. On Feb 15, 2019, the appellant’s motion to stay the district court’s injunction pending the en banc consideration was ordered to be carried by the Fifth Circuit on behalf of the en banc court. The en banc oral argument was held on May 14, 2019.

The case is ongoing.
