A little background on proposed changes:
In 2016, the Utah Legislature voted to move forward on a limited Medicaid expansion to very low-income adults experiencing chronic homelessness, substance abuse or mental health needs, or involved in the justice system. While not a full Medicaid expansion, many viewed this as a small first step toward insuring some of Utah’s most vulnerable. Now the Utah Department of Health is proposing to make changes to this small limited expansion, by placing additional restrictions on their Medicaid insurance. What's more, the Department is also proposing to make changes to the Primary Care Network or PCN program which provides primary care services to over 14,000 low-income parents and individuals. The Department is also proposing to add restrictions to parent/ caretakers' Medicaid coverage.
