The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare is being sued for cutting benefits and not disclosing why. The suit says benefits for a group of disabled Medicaid participants were cut up to 40 percent, without alerting the group as to why.

The plaintiffs says that the cuts have severely affected their care and they don't have enough money for the care they need now. When the lawsuit was filed last month, the department claimed it couldn't divulge how it came up with the reductions in funds because the methods used to produce the formulas for calculating the funding is a trade secret.
