A House Committee will continue its hearings on a Republican proposal for reform and expansion of Medicaid Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning.
The Committee on Government Oversight and Accountability will hear Monday at 2 p.m. the portions of the legislation dealing with health care homes, managed care, and managed care requirements. In a hearing Tuesday beginning at 8 a.m. the committee will discuss the “Show-Me Healthy Babies program,” proposed to provide medical coverage to unborn children through the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), increases in eligibility, and coverage for high-cost Medicaid recipients with complex medical conditions who would fall under a new category of “medically frail.”
The hearings will take place in Hearing Room 3 in the basement of the State Capitol.
The proposal is HB 1901, sponsored by Representative Noel Torpey (R-Independence).
