ANALYSIS | Medicaid Is Making The Same Mistake Again


Despite warnings, the state is about to make a big mistake — again. The Department of Social Services is planning to renew PCMH Plus, the risky Medicaid experiment that has cost the state more while doing nothing to improve care, and jeopardizes hard-earned progress. Two years ago, when the state wanted to expand PCMH Plus the first time, advocates raised alarms because we had no data on how it was working or what it cost in its first year. The state expanded the program anyway. Now we do know what happened in that first year — and it’s not good. Instead of learning from the mistake, DSS is plowing ahead on the latest expansion without information. They tell us that if we wait a bit longer, it will get better.
