Seattle Children's could see $60 million in Medicaid cuts
Seattle Children's Hospital stands to lose nearly $60 million in Medicaid funding over the next two years—possibly the largest proposed budget cut to any hospital in the state, hospital officials said. That is forcing Children's to make some decisions that would affect thousands of kids in the region. Among the programs being considered for reductions: dental care, outpatient psychiatric visits, and home-care help. The hospital is also pondering the future of its nurse-consulting phone line, a longtime service for parents wanting information about various ailments.
