Governor Sees Progress in New Medicaid Deal While Others See Pain
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Nearly 600,000 low-income, poor and disabled Iowans will see an additional $386 million dollars in total state and federal dollars towards their private Medicaid. "It's one percent less coming out of the general fund. We are starting to bend the cost curve. We've improved access, increased what we pay to providers and in addition to that we are placing more accountability for the Managed Care Organizations," said Governor Kim Reynolds.
