State picks Deloitte to craft waiver plan on health coverage

 

The state said Monday that it has picked Deloitte Consulting as the winner of an almost $2 million consulting contract to develop health care ‘’waivers’’ for Georgia’s Medicaid program and the private insurance market.

Jennifer Owens, GBPI deputy director, said, “We are excited to learn that this critically important process is moving forward. We’re cautiously optimistic that this will be a transparent process that puts the needs of beneficiaries first and foremost. This is our shot to get it right. We’re hopeful that the final waiver proposal will cover as many eligible Georgians as possible and do so in a fiscally responsible manner, drawing down the maximum amount of federal resources available to Georgia.’’
