Maine Attorney General William Schneider says he’s disappointed by a federal appeals court’s rejection of Maine’s lawsuit to speed up the implementation of Medicaid cuts.The court ruled on Thursday that Maine’s request to wipe out Medicaid for more than 20 thousand residents is premature because the federal government has until November to consider it.Schneider says the court didn’t address Maine’s legal arguments but focused on the administrative process.Maine lawmakers voted to cut coverage to thousands of Mainers effective October first.
