Only one of six reports on various aspects of the state’s health care system that lawmakers required as part of last year’s bill renaming Medicaid as MO HealthNet was submitted on time and three have yet to be finished or even started, The Associated Press reported on Jan. 7.

The reports were due by Jan. 1. Only Attorney General Jay Nixon’s office turned in its mandated report on time. Two reports from the Missouri Department of Social Services were turned in on Jan. 2.

One of the tardy reports is due from the Joint Committee on MO HealthNet, which is to consist of five senators and five representatives. However, no members have yet been appointed to the panel. Reports from the legislative budget office and the recently created MO HealthNet Oversight Committee, which oversees the program, are also late.
