Jeb Bush's Medicaid legacy frets Florida lawmakers
Florida lawmakers learned that former Gov. Jeb Bush's controversial Medicaid reform plan from 2005 includes a time bomb for hospitals: A $300 million penalty. That's the amount Florida could lose in federal charity healthcare money if legislators don't reorganize Medicaid statewide within two years. This is about an experimental program designed to shift more Medicaid patients to managed-care plans and make the public health system run more like private companies. It currently operates in Broward County and the Jacksonville area.
