Hundreds attend public forum in Bowling Green to discuss Medicaid

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin wants to overhaul Medicaid, however some people disagree with his plan.

Several hundred people showed up at a public forum in Bowling Green on Tuesday morning.

Gov. Bevin says the program is too expensive. Under his plan, most of the 1.2 million Kentuckians using the state's Medicaid program would have fewer benefits and pay monthly premiums for coverage.

He says the goal is to move people into private insurance. The federal government must approve Bevin's proposal.

Health care advocates and consumers are urging him to change the proposal or abandon it.
