On Thursday morning, the House Health and Human Services Committee voted out, on a party-line basis, two proposed committee bills that comprise the House's Medicaid reform proposal. The reform proposal contained a few changes from the last published version, notably requiring the agency, in selecting managed care plans, to provide a preference for plans with a provider network in which more than 10 percent of providers use electronic health records, and allowing managed care plans to include providers located outside of their respective region. The companion in the Senate, S.B. 1972 by Sen. Joe Negron, was referred on Wednesday to the Health Regulation and Budget Committees.
