Bryan Gowdy orally argued to the First District Court of Appeal on behalf of attorney Nancy Wright in her lawsuit against Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). Ms. Wright represents Medicaid beneficiaries in "Fair Hearings" conducted by ACHA-appointed hearing officers. The hearing officers determine whether Medicaid covers medical care and treatment sought by a beneficiary. Ms. Wright contends that state law requires AHCA to transmit the hearing officers' final orders to a centralized electronic database that the public can access online. AHCA disagrees. The Florida Bar's Elder Law Section filed an amicus brief in support of Ms. Wright.
