Farm Bill Provision Will Disrupt Georgia Medicaid Program
Date:2/29/2008

Over 40 million Needy Children and Adults to be Affected Nationwide, Study

Expects

WASHINGTON, Feb. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A survey released today by Spectrum Science Communications states that a little known anti-privatization measure in the current farm bill would critically harm Georgia's ability to effectively administer its Medicaid program. The measure, offered as an amendment to the House-passed Farm Bill by Rep.

"This provision will severely hamper the administration of hundreds of social services programs in the U.S., affecting 1.9 million recipients of Medicaid in Georgia," said Audrey Spolarich of Spectrum Science Communications.

If the farm bill passes with the Baca amendment, significant disruptions in services to low-income Georgians will occur in the immediate future. Over time, the recent modernization of the administration process would be reversed, ultimately resulting in higher costs.
