State Rep. Cindy Acree has agenda for improving Medicaid
Since Medicaid was created in 1965, politicians have been trying to "fix" Medicaid, the Federal and States program that pays for health care for mostly women and children in poverty.
There is no fix for Medcaid, but continuous quality improvement can make the program more cost effective, subject to Federal and States' regulations, which change frequently.
Colorado State Rep. Cindy Acree (HD-40) is a consultant who is working to make some changes in the state's Medicaid program, which she explained at a recent meeting with business leaders at the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce. I think this clip provides an interesting glimpse into the political process of making Medicaid work better. LINK: Cindy Acree.
