Governor Steve Beshear says the problems with Kentucky s new Medicaid Managed Care system will be resolved.
Beshear pushed for the managed care system last year to take some of the administrative burden of Medicaid off of the state. But earlier this week, doctors, pharmacists and hospital officials told lawmakers there were significant problems with the system. Specifically, care providers are owed millions of dollars in claim payments and have struggled to get pre-authorizations for procedures and medications.
But the governor isn't surprised to hear about the problems.
