New Report on Medicaid Quality of Care in Florida

 

From a report released today from The Georgetown University Center for Children and Families along with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and the Sarasota Herald Tribune:

• More than 80 percent of the pediatricians surveyed experienced cases in which insurance plan limits, or requirements for authorizations for needed treatments, such as prescription drugs, had prevented them from providing children with needed care.

• More than two-thirds of those surveyed said they saw an increase in the number of children being reassigned to other Medicaid plans or physicians without their parents’ consent.

• About 59 percent of responding pediatricians said families had a hard time finding specialists that would accept Medicaid. Referrals to behavioral or mental health professionals were the most difficult to fill.
