What They’re Watching: Anne Rote

The Trump administration has had a slower start than expected. Ann Rote, president of Molina Healthcare of Texas, talks about the challenges of state budgeting during the transition to Trump’s administration.

 

We have a budget shortfall and we’re very concerned about that. Administrative regulations and burdens that make us have to spend more money on administration and less money on healthcare so weꞌd love to minimize that. How ACA is going to turn out, whatꞌs going to happen with Marketplace and how that plays in to Medicaid, either block grants per capita, something else, how that will impact the budget because we are concerned in Texas that the legislative session will end prior to DC making decisions and we may have to come back and have special session.
