South Kenai Peninsula Representative Paul Seaton has prefiled two bills concerning healthcare issues. House Bill 227, if passed, will build on last year’s Medicaid Expansion bill. Seaton says it includes Medicaid reforms that could save the state millions, but the reforms required separate legislative action.
“So $309 million would basically be the cost savings over the next five years by implementing this bill,” said Seaton.
Seaton adds, after five years the reforms will save the state about $100 million per year.
