Notes of Decisions


   Health care provider that provided care and services to persons with mental retardation have an administrative remedy that could address its claims that Department of Public Welfare failed to reimburse it on cost-related basis for direct care staff costs, and reimbursed State-operated facilities more than non-State providers for same services; therefore, it must first pursue that avenue of relief before seeking judicial review. Network v. Department of Public Welfare, 833 A.2d 271, 275 (Pa. Cmwlth. 2003)
