Health Care Workers Discuss Medicaid Expansion



Bookmark and Share

Access to health care professionals and reimbursement options were among the topics discussed at a meeting of a state task force studying the possibility of expanding Medicaid in South Dakota.
    
The 29-member panel appointed by Gov. Dennis Daugaard is made up of lawmakers, medical facilities directors and other health care workers.
    
The panel will not recommend whether the program should be expanded, but instead is identifying the advantages and disadvantages of Medicaid in a report that will be approved in August.
    
Department of Social Services Secretary Kim Malsam-Rysdon says there are perceptions that Medicaid is broken. She says there is room for reform, and its effectiveness should be better measured.
    
The task force also discussed the timing of implementation if the Legislature ultimately decides to expand Medicaid.
