Kentucky's Medicaid Commissioner Has Resigned

Kentucky Medicaid Commissioner Elizabeth Johnson has resigned her position as head of the nearly $6 billion health care plan for about 800,000 low-income and disabled Kentuckians.

The resignation was announced Tuesday by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services in a statement that said Johnson, a lawyer, was leaving to practice law in Lexington.

The resignation comes as the state Medicaid program faces a growing deficit of nearly $500 million and criticism by some lawmakers and advocates that the administration of Gov. Steve Beshear isn’t moving fast enough to find solutions.

Deputy commissioner Neville Wise will serve as acting commissioner. The cabinet said in a statement that it plans to conduct a national search for a new commissioner.
