The General Assembly’s Health Finance Study Committee meets this morning at 10 a.m. It looks to have a full agenda (pdf).
(1) Food handling issues
(2) Telehealth and telemedicine
(3) Issues concerning midwives
(4) Update on Healthy Indiana Plan renewal- Secretary Minott, FSSA
(5) Methadone Report
(6) Follow-up testimony concerning tanning beds
(7) Managed care issue
Also, browsing through prior minutes (pdf) of the Health Finance Commission, I see that Indiana is ranked 35th for immunizations of babies 19-35 months old. I blame Jenny McCarthy.
Sort of a random offering for this Monday morning. I figured I should be trolling the interim study committees a little more; but I haven’t done a very good job of it as yet.
David Z says
We also have one of the highest infant mortality rates in the country…coincidentally.
I guess the health of children doesn’t make the list of Hoosier values.
Time for the right wing nut jobs to defund ObamaCare and take health insurance away from those children who already have a chronic illness.
We obviously can’t afford to deliver health care to the children of Indiana.
