Secretary Thompson Approves Utah Waiver for Primary Care Network
Secretary of Health and
Human Services Tommy Thompson approved a Utah Medicaid demonstration
waiver to expand benefits for primary care and preventive
services to about 25,000 Utah residents who otherwise would
not have access to health coverage. The waiver allows
Utah's Medicaid program to reduce some benefits to current
Medicaid eligible adults in order to reallocate these funds
to offer some coverage to working individuals who have no
health care coverage in the workplace.
