Gov. Butch Otter has made reference to his Medicaid redesign workgroup’s findings. “I have studied the recommendations of my Medicaid Redesign Workgroup and agree with its findings – up to a point,” he told lawmakers. “I especially appreciate the work group’s strong focus on personal accountability, requiring co-payments, and managed care.” He asked lawmakers to hold hearings on the group’s proposals. “Listen to their findings, ask questions and educate yourselves on all the work they have done,” he said. And if it's warranted, he told lawmakers, take action.
