Case No. 11-12119
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF
DEFENSE, TRICARE MANAGEMENT
ACTIVITY, and ROBERT M. GATES,
HON. AVERN COHN
ORDER STAYING PROCEEDINGS
This is a case challenging a decision by TRICARE Management Activity
(TRICARE), a managed health care program for members of the uniformed services,
retirees, and their dependents. Plaintiffs Joe Flores (Flores) and Consuelo Flores,
Flores’s daughter, say that TRICARE has unlawfully stopped providing coverage to
Flores on the grounds that the care provided is “custodial” and not “skilled nursing care.”
Plaintiffs seek relief under the Administrative Procedures Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. § 702, as
being aggrieved by an agency action. The parties are endeavoring to resolve the case
in the form of an order of remand to TRICARE.
The Court held a telephone conference on December 20, 2011. This order
memorializes the matters discussed at the conference.
Proceedings in the case are STAYED for sixty (60) days. In the interim, the
parties shall meet and confer on an appropriate remand order. If the parties are unable
to agree on a remand order in thirty (30) days, then the matter will be referred to
Magistrate Judge Majzoub to meet with the parties within the next thirty (30) days to see
if an appropriate remand order can be entered.
