Around the nation: Missouri Gov. withdraws plans to expand Medicaid


Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R) withdrew the state's request to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act after the state Legislature refused to provide funding for the voter-approved expansion, in today's bite-sized hospital and health industry news from Massachusetts, Missouri, and Washington.

  • Massachusetts: Medically Home Group, a hospital-at-home company based in Boston, has received about $100 million in investment funding from Kaiser Permanente and Mayo Clinic. The funding aims to scale the company's operations and allow health care providers to provide high-acuity care to patients at home, according to Traci Klein, a spokesperson for Mayo Clinic (Vaidya, MedCity News, 5/13).
  • Missouri: Gov. Mike Parson (R) on Thursday withdrew the state's request to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act after the state Legislature refused to provide funding for voter-approved expansion. "Without a revenue source or funding authority from the General Assembly, we are unable to proceed with the expansion at this time and must withdraw our State Plan Amendments to ensure Missouri's existing [Medicaid] program remains solvent," Parson said (AP/Modern Healthcare, 5/13).
  • Washington: Providence Northwest Washington has named Darren Redick as CEO. Redick has worked in the Northwest service area since 2009 and previously served as the region's executive director of operations and VP of professional and support services. As CEO of Providence Northwest, Redick will oversee Providence Regional Medical Center Everett and Providence Medical Group Northwest (Gooch, Becker's Hospital Review, 5/13).
