Mississippi faces $52 million Medicaid budget gap this year

The top budget writer in the Mississippi House says the state’s Medicaid program needs another $52 million during the budget year that ends June 30.

Appropriations Committee Chairman Herb Frierson also says one way to plug that hole, and to cover other deficits, is to use $66 million in lawsuit settlements announced by Attorney General Jim Hood.
