The state Senate Interim Committee on Medicaid Accountability and Taxpayer Accountability issued recommendations regarding abortion providers and their family planning affiliates. This aspect of the committee’s work focuses on Planned Parenthood. The committee’s report calls for new authority to suspend or revoke Missouri Medicaid participation if the provider has been suspended or revoked in another state for fraudulent, abusive or unethical behavior, which would be grounds for such action in Missouri. The committee plans to release a second report on Medicaid topics before the 2022 legislative session.
