Knapp Medical Center v. Hargan, No. 16-5234 (D.C. Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
The DC Circuit affirmed the district court's judgment interpreting the preclusion-of-review provision in Section 1877 of the Social Security Act (the Stark Law), 42 U.S.C. 1395nn(a)(1)–(2), to deprive it of subject matter jurisdiction. The court held that "the process under this paragraph" encompasses all of section 1395nn(i)(3), including the granting or denial of expansion applications. Therefore, section 1395nn(i)(3)(I) precludes judicial review of plaintiff's claims.
