Even after a lengthy Special Session dedicated to finding funds for Gov. Robert Bentley’s experimental Medicaid Regional Care Organizations, Alabama’s Medicaid Agency announced last week it has requested a delay in the implementation of the RCO plan.
The Alabama Medicaid Agency officials, in a news release on their website, said they will ask the Federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to “postpone the start date for the proposed Regional Care Organizations until July 1, 2017.”
