Minn. seeks ok to change Medicaid health plan
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton is asking for federal permission to make changes to Minnesota's Medicaid program to save as much as $151 million over five years.
The Democratic governor formally asked the U.S. Health and Human Services Department for a waiver from current rules on Friday.
Dayton says in a letter that rising costs and an aging population will make the current Medicaid system unsustainable by 2020 unless major changes are made.
