State officials say Medicaid proposal will slow spending, but a key legislator says it’s not enough

A plan to hold down costs in the state’s Medicaid program could help the state avoid spending $326 million over five years. The plan goes to the legislature for debate during the session that begins in May. Legislators can accept, reject or change it. The federal government would have to approve changes before they’re implemented.
