Massachusetts seeks fair shake in health bill

Boston Globe, March 12, 2010

President Obama's demand to delete "special deals" in the healthcare package would eliminate $500 million in extra Medicaid cash for Massachusetts, but Massachusetts lawmakers say they are confident the state would recoup that and probably more once negotiations are complete, the Boston Globe reports. Obama has told congressional leaders to remove the deals to make the reform proposal more salable to the public. One of those deals is a Senate provision to reimburse Massachusetts and Vermont for having already expanded Medicaid coverage to a broader base of low-income people.
