Oregon - Staley v. Kitzhaber 2000

Oregon

“The lawsuit was the result of years of frustration in waiting for appropriate, adequate services and supports to individuals with developmental disabilities, and their families… The lawsuit alleges that the State of Oregon failed to provide services in the most integrated possible setting to adults with mental retardation and/or developmental disabilities eligible for placement in an ICF/MR (intermediate care facility for the mentally retarded) and that individuals with developmental disabilities are entitled to receive Medicaid-Funded services with reasonable promptness.”

“This agreement is intended to provide relief to not only the plaintiffs but also to all other similarly situated individuals with developmental disabilities eligible to receive services under the federal Medicaid program.”
