Public hearing on ER use and Medicaid

The Legislative Program Review and Investigations Committee will be holding a public hearing for their study of whether Medicaid consumers are over-using emergency dept. visits inappropriately and, if true, the impact on the state budget. If true, they will search for reasons including who is inappropriately using the ER, for what problems, and make recommendations. The hearing will be Sept. 26th at 2:30 pm in Room 2D of the LOB.
