Dallas Morning News, February 12, 2009
North Texas lawmakers have urged the state to crack down on Evercare, a health insurer that manages care of 78,000 elderly and disabled Medicaid patients. Republican Sens. Jane Nelson of Flower Mound and Chris Harris of Arlington said that fines against Evercare of Texas haven't worked. At a Senate Finance Committee hearing, both senators said that they still field many complaints from Evercare plan members who can't find doctors willing to see them.
