Medicaid Expansion Outlook Grim
A strong House source says that Medicaid expansion is highly unlikely next session. “It has about the same chance that it had last year.”
Instead they’re looking at pursuing a Medicaid reform package. And two sources are saying that “reform” means putting the state’s Medicaid program totally under a managed care company.
If that’s how this is going down, then there’ll be a major scrum over who gets that contract. Though there might be one minor quibble for the non-believers… would the managed care operators actually save the state money?
