Broward County wants out of Florida Medicaid pilot

AP/Miami Herald, February 25, 2009
Broward, the largest county in Florida's Medicaid privatization experiment, wants out of the troubled program amid complaints that residents are getting shoddy medical treatment. Two years into the pilot, residents "tell these terrible stories about how their medical treatment is so compromised that it is unacceptable," said state Rep. Elaine Schwartz, D-Hollywood. She worked with Broward County commissioners to draft a resolution that supports a repeal of the pilot in the county and opposes expanding it into other counties.
