Study defends Florida Medicaid pilot

Miami Herald, July 21, 2008

A new report from a free-market think tank argues that Florida's Medicaid pilot program has had "numerous accomplishments" and should be expanded across the state. The report further contends that previous studies critical of the program were flawed. While it's too soon to tell whether quality of care has improved over the pre-reform days of Medicaid, it's clear that beneficiaries have more services and products available to them and that doctors are sticking with the program, said Cleveland State University finance professor Michael Bond.
