Raising the Alarm About Delayed Medicaid Reimbursements

Delays in cash flow affect staff and management operations, thus imperiling vital care for thousands of vulnerable Rhode Islanders, providers said. In response, the state acknowledged concerns but asserted they are being properly and promptly addressed.
