Lawmakers are scheduled to return to Springfield November 29 to review the state’s Medicaid program and workers’ compensation laws, according to Senator Tim Bivins.

Both the Special Committee on Medicaid Reform and the Special Committee on Workers’ Compensation Reform are scheduled to meet at 1:00 p.m., November 29, in Springfield. Lawmakers serving on the special committees plan to meet throughout December in order to submit reports on the issues by a Jan. 3, 2011, deadline.

Medicaid reform has been discussed for years, and numerous studies have been conducted on the issue. The research generated a number of legislative proposals to restructure Medicaid, but no significant action has been taken to reduce the overwhelming financial burden of the program. " />
