Vir­ginia gov makes move with­out re­gard for the law­mak­ers

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the re­cent ar­ti­cle “Va. gover­nor to by­pass law­mak­ers, ex­pand Med­i­caid” (Mod­ern­Health­care.com, June 20), here we go again. Force it down people’s throats with­out re­gard to what the Leg­is­la­ture be­lieves is ap­pro­pri­ate for the state of Vir­ginia. An­other po­lit­i­cal move by some­one who be­lieves ac­cess with­out pay­ment re­form will solve the is­sues our in­dus­try is fac­ing. Pay­ment re­form to the providers, es­pe­cially the physi­cians, is what’s nec­es­sary. Now you will see the com­mit­ted providers run for the ex­its as they re­al­ize re­im­burse­ment does not cover costs.
