Bill Barnes, of Intermountain’s Government Relations office, provides the following update on the 2014 Utah legislative session:
We are now well into the 2014 session and are closely tracking several issues related to healthcare. In particular, the state faces important decisions relating to Medicaid. Issues include:
- Medicaid funding—particularly in view of last year’s transition to managed Medicaid in Utah’s urban counties.
- Whether to expand Medicaid as proposed in the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA), and what to do for people under 100 percent of the federal poverty level, if anything, if the decision is made to not expand Medicaid.
- Possible mandates relating to Medicaid.
