The Medicaid Redesign Team is conducting regional public hearings across the state to solicit ideas from the public on ways to reduce costs and improve the quality of the Medicaid program. We strongly encourage FQHCs, FQHC Look-Alikes, and others who care about community-based health care to participate in one of the upcoming hearings. The MRTmusthear from you how vital it is to invest in a robust, patient-centered primary care system that will reduce the need for more expensive interventions, particularly for patients with multiple chronic illnesses.
