Virginia gov makes move without regard for the lawmakers
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.
