Florida House of Representatives passes Medicaid changes
Miami Herald, April 23, 2009
The Florida House has overwhelmingly voted to restructure the panel that recommends how to distribute roughly $2 billion a year in Medicaid money. The proposal by Rep. Jimmy Patronis would revamp the Low-Income Pool Council. The panel was created in 2005 to advise the Legislature on the distribution of Medicaid funds. Miami-Dade County currently contributes more money than any other local government. But this session, groups such as the Hospital Corp. of America and federal health clinics have pushed to change the makeup of the council, arguing for more transparency.
