(MO) Governorís medicaid cuts detailed
Governor Nixon recommends a 120-million dollar funding cut for the Medicaid program. But the administration thinks the cuts will be mostly painless.

More than half of the cuts will come through better service reviews and in reductions in payments to providers, especially longterm care providers.

Some Medicaid clients are eligible for coverage under Medicare or through other insurance. The state promises to do a better job of charging those costs to other insurers.

State budget director Linda Luebbering says no services will be eliminated and no cuts will be made in eligibility. But better care management will be emphasized.

A damn sight better than the last GOP governor of this state (Blunt - push disabled people down the stairs Medicaid cuts)

1. The only Nixon I was glad to vote for
I didn't get to vote for him for Gov, but for his other positions when I was still in Misery. He's a great guy; I like him as much as I did Carnahan.
