“The Florida Medical Association voted to publicly oppose the state’s Medicaid overhaul and write a letter of concern to the federal government,” Brittany Alana Davis of Health News Florida reports. Scott’s plan — which has to be approved by the federal government — would require “most of the state’s 3 million Medicaid enrollees to join private health plans after July 1, 2012.” The proposal “gives managed care companies more control over the program that’s paid for with federal and state money.” Reports have suggested that Scott’s companies could also stand to benefit from the plan.
