Bill would require internal managed care for state Medicaid
April 28, 2021
We had another incredibly busy week in the House of Representatives last week as we worked to hear all of the Senate bills by the third-reading deadline.
We passed several measures that I’m hoping get signed into law. I would like to discuss a couple of those that I received a lot of input on over the last few weeks.
House Bill 131 would require the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) to implement internal managed care for Oklahoma’s Medicaid program instead of outsourcing it to out-of-state, private corporations – the current managed care plan being proposed.
I appreciate so muc...
