LRS files response opposing State's motion to dismiss in EPSDT case
The Ohio Legal Rights Service (LRS) filed a response in G.D. v Colbert opposing a motion by the State to dismiss the case or to grant summary judgment in the State's favor. This class action lawsuit, filed by LRS against the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS), seeks to require the State to comply with federal laws related to the Early Periodic Screening Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) program. LRS argued in its response that the State's motion lacks merit and the definition of "medically necessary services" conflicts with federal EPSDT requirements.
LRS is co-counseling with Advocates for Basic Legal Equality (ABLE) in this case. ABLE is a non-profit regional law firm that provides civil legal assistance to low-income clients in 32 counties in Western Ohio.
