JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) -Mississippi’s Division of Medicaid has pulled back on a controversial proposal. A proposed amendment to the Medcaid State Plan was filed on September 5. That would have included a reduction in the amount of payments it makes for services for families of special needs children.
Several of those families and providers reached out to WLBT. A day after reporting the proposal, we were informed of the Division’s decision to longer submit the proposed amendment.
The public notice on the website now has an added description saying they will no longer be submitting the proposal for approval.
