This bill’s proposed reforms would collectively strengthen Medicaid by making it more responsive to beneficiaries’ needs, protecting vulnerable Medicaid beneficiary populations and their spouses and ensuring that Medicaid drug prices are reasonable.
This bill combines too many disparate Medicaid reforms & extensions, not all of which are urgent. For example, the MFP demonstration has already been extended through September 30, 2021 — there’s no need for a preemptive extension so far in advance of its expiration.
