Box 325, Noryalk, IA 50211 "Member of: National Newspaper Association Iowa Newspaper Association Legislative News I BY State Representative Julian B. Garrett I Bill Will Save State $86 Million In the 2013 legislative session, working with the De- partment of Human Services, I guided the Medicaid Program Integrity Initiative bill though the Iowa House. The purpose of the bill is:to help the DHS to investigate and recover losses incurred because of fraud and waste in the Medicaid program. It also helps avoid paying claims that are fraudulent or improper. I chaired the House Subcommittee that recommended the bill and was the manager for the bill on the House floor. Governor Branstad has announced that the Med- icaid program wilLsav.e$86 million over the next three years as a result of this bill. The Governor reported that the bill has already saved the State $41 million. This program has turned up abuse by both providers and beneficiaries. When I presented the bill to the members of the House on the floor, I stated that "Many of us ran on a platform of eliminating fraud and waste in gov- ernment." I added, "Here is a bill that will do just that." The House listened and the bill passed 96-1. The Senate passed the bill 49-0 and the Governor signed it. As always, feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns at 515-281-3221 or Julian.Garrett@legis.iowa. gov. , POLICE REPORT Disclaimer: All defendants are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
