Legislative Day 11 - 2011

A bill to crack down on Medicaid fraud was introduced in the Senate today.
Sen. John Albers’s legislation will require Medicaid patients to present “Smart Cards” that have patient data encoded on them before receiving care. Patients will also have to be fingerprinted before and after office visits.

Also, Senate Democrats reacted strongly today to a new reapportionment committee process. Democrats feel they have been locked out of redistricting decision-making.

We are joined in-studio for a child welfare discussion by Representative Mary Margaret Oliver, a child welfare advocate and Kristen Widner of the Barton Child Law and Policy Clinic.
