House pushes Medicaid experiment for nine additional Florida counties

Miami Herald, April 10, 2008

The Florida House has decided to push forward with a plan to expand a change in the way Medicaid works. Under the plan, Medicaid would work more like private healthcare and put patients into care networks like health maintenance organizations. Supporters said that would boost preventive care and limit cost increases, but some advocates for the poor say it would leave some people unable to find the care they need.
