New conservative think tank calls Florida’s Medicaid Reform Pilot program ‘a decided success’

New conservative think tank calls Florida’s Medicaid Reform Pilot program ‘a decided success’

Foundation for Government Accountability CEO Tarren Bragdon (Pic via floridafga.org) The Foundation for Government, a new Naples-based conservative policy group, has released its latest publication, claiming that Florida’s controversial five-county Medicaid Reform Pilot “has been a decided success.” Foundation CEO Tarren Bragdon writes in his report (.pdf), published by the Heritage Foundation, that the state’s Medicaid privatization plan has “improved the health of enrolled patients, achieved high patient satisfaction, and kept cost increases below average, saving Florida up to $118 million annually.” The report also claims that “if Florida’s Medicaid Reform Pilot experience were replicated nationwide, Medicaid patient satisfaction would soar, health outcomes would improve, and Medicaid programs could save up to $28.6 billion annually.” The Foundation is a “free market” public policy group that was created by interested parties in Florida looking to bring Bragdon, the former CEO if a similar policy group in Maine, to Florida. So far, the group has not disclosed who those initial donors and interested parties were.
