COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A federal judge has rescheduled a court hearing as attorneys for an Ohio group and the state work to settle a lawsuit involving people terminated from the Medicaid health care program.

Judge Algenon Marbley said in an order on Wednesday that the parties have told the court they have agreed to settlement terms but need more time to finalize a decision.

The case involves how Ohio “re-determines” the eligibility of Medicaid recipients.

In late March, the Legal Aid Society of Columbus sued the state’s Medicaid director on behalf of several individuals and two nonprofits. Their lawsuit claims that individuals’ Medicaid benefits were terminated or put at risk after Ohio failed to follow federal law and Medicaid regulations.

Marbley pushed back a hearing in the case that was scheduled for Thursday.
