Petition circulating in Bell County to save health clinics

BELL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - A petition is circulating to save health clinics in one Eastern Kentucky county.

Officials with the Bell County Health Department say they want the department to be removed from Medicaid billing as a managed care organization, which has resulted in billing issues and lost funding.

Officials say without changes, school health clinics could limit services or close.

More than two thousand people in Bell County have already signed the petition.
