Lawmakers seek Medicaid oversight despite veto threat

mathis clinton iowaIowa legislators say they are building a plan to adopt at least part of a $17 million Medicaid oversight recommendation that Gov. Terry Branstad has dismissed as “overkill.”

Those developing the plan said Monday they know a veto could be in store.

“This is oversight that will protect Iowans who are on Medicaid, and if Gov. Branstad feels that he is going to veto that, then he needs to answer to the 560,000 people who are on the program and every doctor and every medical provider who works with these patients across the state,” said Sen. Liz Mathis, a Democrat from Linn County and chairwoman of the Senate Human Resources Committee.
