Medicaid "Transformation" and the McKinsey Report
Missouri lawmakers have indicated they plan to try to "transform" Missouri's Medicaid program in 2020. "Medicaid Transformation" can be used to improve this critical program - but it could also be used to weaken the program and decrease access for program participants. In early 2019, state lawmakers received a report from McKinsey & Co. with "recommendations" on how to transform Medicaid in Missouri; this report will likely impact discussions in 2020.
