Medicaid changes advance during week 2 of 2011 Florida Session

A bill rewriting Florida's Medicaid law was approved by a House committee this past week in the form of PCB (proposed committee bill) HHSC 11-01a.  See Action Packet 3-17-11 for the House Health & Human Services Committee.  The bill would shift hundreds of thousands of Medicaid beneficiaries into HMOs and other managed-care plans.
