medicaidStates may add more oversight to Medicaid billing, particularly for managed care.

Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R) recently promised to “carefully consider an agreement hammered out by Iowa legislators late last week that creates enhanced oversight of the state’s Medicaid program.” The deal “includes provisions requested by Republicans that require data reporting to ensure managed-care organizations are meeting outcomes standards.” Meanwhile, Democratic lawmakers requested “an additional long-term care ombudsman who has expanded and strengthened oversight authority.”
