Sick children removed from Florida Medicaid program prompts call for 'oversight'

Following a CNN report on Florida's decision to remove more than 13,000 children from a Medicaidprogram for very sick kids, Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep. Kathy Castor are calling on the Department of Health to investigate the decision.

In 2015, the state pulled more than 13,000 children out of the Children’s Medical Services, or CMS programs, a part of Florida’s Medicaid.

The children were moved to other Medicaid insurance plans that didn’t offer specialized care for sick children.
