AIDS Healthcare Found. v. State Dept. Health Care Serv.Annotate this Case
AHF sought a writ directing the Department (1) to withdraw its order rejecting and remanding an ALJ’s proposed decision on AHF’s administrative claims against the Department, and (2) to adopt as the “Final Decision” certain portions of the administrative law judge’s proposed decision and to reject other portions. The court concluded that the administrative exhaustion requirement bars AHF’s petition because AHF’s administrative claim is not final and the Department’s administrative processes and procedures were legally adequate and did not violate the law. Accordingly, the court affirmed the trial court's conclusion that AHF was not entitled to judicial review.
