Dems: Response to Governor Branstad’s action today on Medicaid oversight

May 27, 2016


Ragan speaking April 22, 2016Senator Amanda Ragan of Mason City, Chair of the Health and Human Services Appropriations Subcommittee

“I’m glad Governor Branstad did not veto the Medicaid oversight compromise reached by the Iowa House and Senate.  The mistakes and mismanagement caused by Iowa’s rushed approach to Medicaid privatization continue to create problems for some of Iowa’s most vulnerable residents.

“This summer and fall, we will continue to listen to, and be vigilant advocates for, Iowans fighting for essential health care services.

“The efforts of these Iowans, and the newly approved Medicaid oversight measures, are making it more likely that improvements to Iowa’s health care safety net will be made.”
