State lawmakers on the Medicaid Reform Commission hit the road Tuesday – traveling to St. Joseph and Kansas City for three days of public hearings outside the Capitol. The Missouri Association for Social Welfare will be holding public hearings of its own, beginning in St. Louis. Sharon Feltman with the Association says the Medicaid Commission is too narrowly focused, and the Association wants to expand the discussion. Feltman doesn’t see the Association’s public hearings as competing with those of the Mediciad Reform Commission. She hopes they complement the Commission’s work and their findings will be considered by state legislators when the return for the regular session next year.
