Testimony Opposing HB 3891: RAC
TAHP opposes HB 3891 as it threatens the effectiveness of the Texas Medicaid program by carving out post-payment fraud efforts from the managed care model, which will result in increased provider abrasion and impede progress towards value-based payments.
Over the past 25 years, Texas has modernized its Medicaid system to provide more than 4 million Texans with comprehensive, patient-centered health insurance. Today, Texas partners with private health insurance providers, known as Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs), to administer Medicaid and CHIP. Texas Medicaid MCOs assume all financial risk for providing needed services to their members, including the additional cost of fraud, waste, and abuse.
