Bill to Reform Iowa’s Medicaid System Proposed
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Two senate Democrats are proposing some big changes to Iowa's privatized Medicaid system. Thursday morning, senators Amanda Ragan of Mason City and Liz Mathis of Hiawatha introduced the Senate Democrat Medicaid Improvement Bill. They say they want to upgrade the current system by improving access to care, ensuring payment to healthcare providers, and keeping the program as a whole focused on patients.
