The auditors that Rep. Jon Hubbard would like to abuse so he can harass the University of Arkansas have more important tasks to perform.
* MEDICAID SPENDING: The auditors released this morning a comprehensive report on Arkansas Medicaid spending on mental health services, in-patient and out-patient. It totals $2.6 billion over five years, not counting related drug costs. The report looks at recidivism and, most interestingly, how the money shakes out. Which agencies — residential and community based — get the most money. Which doctors make the most referrals based on future cost? I can’t summarize much now, but it’s a wealth of important information. Full report here.
