Two Medicaid meetings happening at Iowa Statehouse today

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Happening today at the Iowa Statehouse -- more people can sound off about Medicaid.

The shift to a privatized system in Iowa has been very controversial. Many patients say they can't get treatment. Some providers say they can't get paid. Governor Branstad's office has a different take.

There are two meetings today in Des Moines.

This morning, lawmakers will hear from people on Medicaid and providers.

Then this afternoon, a legislative committee that oversees health policy will take a look at the first three months of privatized Medicaid in Iowa -- and then talk about what to do next.
