House, Senate nearing agreement on Medicaid management

The plan would require doctors and hospitals to put skin in the game when it comes to managing the state’s $13 billion Medicaid program. Sen. Ralph Hise, the chamber’s Medicaid expert, said the Senate will introduce a plan Wednesday to reward providers for meeting patient health goals and penalize them financially for cost overruns. The House has been pushing a similar measure.
