Mayo Ending Service to MedicAid Patients from Montana and Nebraska

(AP) According to a Mayo Spokesperson, Shelly Plutowski, as of January 1st, 2010, Mayo will no longer handle MedicAid patients from Montana and Nebraska. She said that's due to low reimbursement rates. Plutowski added that the health system should be changed to something that rewards providers for keeping patients the healthiest. About 50 patients will be affected by canceling contracts with those two states. The Spokesperson added that it's more appropriate for patients in those states to be seen in their own regions.
