Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 opinion(s) today (and 3 NFP memorandum decisions)

For publication opinions today (1):

In Parkview Hospital, Inc. v. John J. Wernert, in his official capacity as Secretary of the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration, and The Methodist Hospitals, Inc., a 45-page opinion, Judge Brown writes:

Parkview Hospital, Inc. (“Parkview”), appeals the July 25, 2014 judgment of the trial court in favor of Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (“FSSA”), and Methodist Hospitals, Inc. (“Methodist,” and FSSA and Methodist, together, “Appellees”) on Parkview’s petition for judicial review. Parkview raises two issues, which we revise and restate as whether the court erred in entering the July 25, 2014 order affirming the decision of the Secretary of FSSA regarding the denial of disproportionate share hospital payments to Parkview. * * *

Based upon the record, the decision of the Secretary of FSSA was not arbitrary, capricious, or unsupported by substantial evidence. In addition, there was no contract or agreement of material terms and conditions regarding DSH payments supporting a forfeiture claim.

For the foregoing reasons, we affirm the July 25, 2014 judgment of the trial court affirming the decision of the Secretary of FSSA.
