The AP reports:

House bill reverses Medicaid cuts

Jefferson City — Hundreds of thousands of Medicaid recipients could regain coverage of services eliminated two years ago, while thousands of doctors could be rewarded with more money for treating them under legislation endorsed Tuesday by a House committee.

The Medicaid overhaul legislation crafted by the House panel could be debated by the full chamber by the end of this week. But it would have to be reconciled with a significantly different Senate version before the legislative session ends May 18.

The bill will increase the number of Medicaid recipients while also raising payments for medical providers who participate.
