WHO: Senate Human Resources Committee Meets After Issues with Medicaid Privatization Raised
The Senate Human Resources Committee met after concerns were raised from an Iowa health provider survey.
For hours, members of the committee heard from providers and caretakers about the problems they're having with the Medicaid switch after claims providers have seen increased costs, reduced services and are not getting paid on time.
“I think the transition has been rugged, it`s been sloppy,” said Liz Mathis, (D) Chair, Human Resources Committee. “I think there`s a disconnect in what we`re seeing in the data and what we`re hearing from providers.”
