Hospitals and other health-care providers can’t sue to challenge reimbursement rates set by states under the Medicaid insurance program for the poor, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled.

Providers now will have to take any objections to rates to the U.S. agency that oversees the joint federal-state program.
