Highlight

The agency's failure to comply with the seventy-five day statutory requirement for issuing its final decision reviewing a denial of payment of a medical assistance claim under N.D.C.C. § 50-24.1-24 does not automatically invalidate the agency's decision.
A balancing test must be applied to determine whether an agency's failure to comply with a directory duty invalidates subsequent proceedings.
