Medicaid Funding

The Nevada Legislature's finance committees met Saturday to finalize the budget for Medicaid. Like much else in Carson City these days, it looks like cuts. But nursing homes and physicians are saying that this will only further squeeze a stressed system. We hear stories of those who use Medicaid services and those who want some other kind of system to fund health care for the poor.
