Rauner Facing Questions About Medicaid Revamp

Questions about soaring cost estimates for a Medicaid revamp are based on false premises, according to Governor Bruce Rauner.

Rauner is being dogged by questions… and now legislative investigations… after estimates for the changeover to managed care programs for Medicaid clients ballooned by more than 50-percent in recent weeks.

Rauner says there are many more people on Medicaid, so of course it will cost more. Democratic lawmakers say that doesn’t explain why the administration’s own estimates increased so drastically… and they’re still demanding answers.
