Lt. Gov. Reeves releases statement on Medicaid special session

“I have talked with Gov. Bryant and Speaker Gunn, and we have agreed the House will take up Medicaid reauthorization first. I support extending the agency for one year to study ways to reform the program, improve care and find efficiencies to save money.

“Earlier this year, the Senate reauthorized and funded Medicaid without expansion in a bipartisan vote. Unfortunately, the bill died in the House. I stand ready to pass similar bills in the special session, just like we did with the economic incentives in the Yokohama special session.”
