On March 9, 2015, Rebecca Brink, senior policy attorney at Children’s Law Center testified at the Department of Healthcare Finance performance oversight hearing. She advocated for a number of changes to improve the Medicaid program and that ensure all children in the program receive easily accessible high quality care.
Some of the specific changes urged were:
- Increased oversight of MCOs;
- Improve children’s utilization of mental health services and ensure accurate data by which to measure progress;
- Improve the case management services of MCOS in a way that improves the quality of services as well as the number of beneficiaries receiving the service.
