The more than 2 million Missourians living under managed care could be affected by reforms suggested by a legislative comittee today.
David Freitas has the story from Jefferson City.
Among the suggested reforms is a proposal for patients to have more direct access to specialists.
Other suggestions call for an independent greivance process.
But where legislators like Senator Joe Maxwell say they have the hargest battle is for reform of emergency care...
The committee says emergency care should be what a prudent person thinks it is.
The committee points out that many of the suggested reforms are already a part of some Missouri managed care companies.
Now they say they want to make sure people are getting what they're paying for.
