By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH, KY - Kentucky House Majority Leader Rocky Adkins visited Lourdes on Thursday, July 12, to discuss several issues including Medicaid Managed Care and the draft Pain Management regulations going into effect soon. Lourdes associates expressed concern about the across-the-board cuts in reimbursement from most payors and the effect that this new reality will have on access for our most vulnerable citizens, the poor and the under-served. Representative Adkins was also interested in the Lourdes Foundation and was very complimentary of Lourdes’ involvement in the community.
Earlier in the morning, he was the keynote speaker at the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce breakfast. He also met with the West KY Regional Chamber Alliance and discussed their priority projects including I-69, inland waterways and nuclear projects.
Rep. Adkins believes Kentucky has a bright future and healthcare professionals working together with lawmakers can make sure our communities obtain quality and efficient healthcare.
