HHSC delays implementation of controversial Medicaid vendor contract

Chair Price: “There’s a lot of confusion that you recognize when Superior has been telling suppliers one thing and then telling our office something separate”

The Health and Human Services Commission will delay the implementation of a controversial Medicaid vendor contract for a month, allowing more time for families to opt out of the use of a mail order model to provide durable medical supplies.

Lawmakers on the House Human Services Committee were more frustrated with Superior HealthPlan than they were HHSC, but it was Executive Commissioner Charles Smith who took the hit, along with new Medicaid Director Jami Snyder.
