Medicaid measure clears Florida House

Miami Herald, April 20, 2010

Large HMOs will have more power than ever in Florida's growing Medicaid program under a major health-reform package that cleared the House. The goals are to stop rampant fraud, reduce costs, and improve healthcare for the almost 2.8 million sick Floridians served by Medicaid. By largely ending fee-for-service, the proposal so fundamentally changes Medicaid that almost every lobby—hospitals, doctors, insurance companies, homes for the developmentally disabled, pharmacists—has voiced concerns, the Miami Herald reports.
