Kentucky Tonight Explores Medicaid Waiver Proposal

Monday, September 12th, 2016

Tonight at 8 we’ll discuss the latest on the Bevin administration’s Medicaid overhaul. Renee Shaw will host the conversation among four state lawmakers: Sen. Julie Raque Adams (R-Louisville), chair of the Senate Health and Welfare Committee; Sen. Reginald Thomas (D-Lexington), member of the Senate Health and Welfare Committee; Rep. Addia Wuchner (R-Florence), vice chair of the House Health and Welfare Committee; and Rep. Mary Lou Marzian (D-Louisville), vice chair of the House Budget Review Subcommittee

The governor’s office delivered its waiver application to federal regulators in late August. Last week the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services indicated the state‚Äôs request had been properly submitted, and now the proposal undergoes a 30-day public comment period.

KET Associate Producer Casey Parker-Bell has this overview of Kentucky’s current Medicaid program and how it might change under the state’s waiver request.
