CHOICES Money May Be Spent On Medicaid Bill
Alachua County Commissioners may have found a way to pay part of a big new bill handed them by the state.
County Attorney David Wagner has issued an opinion that the county can use leftover money from the CHOICES healthcare program to help pay for millions of dollars in medicaid reimbursements owed to the state.
CHOICES was designed to provide healthcare for the working poor. The tax has ended and the program is winding down.
County Manager Rick Drummond will present his tentative budget next Tuesday.
