Senator asks Governor Beshear to make sure Medicaid patients will receive proper healthcare

State Senator Ray Jones is asking Governor Steve Beshear to step in to make sure people on Medicaid receive adequate healthcare.

Coventry Health Care officials say they will renegotiate contracts with several healthcare systems.

Jones says if no agreement is reached, more than 40,000 people will be affected.

Jones also claims Coventry is now sending letters to doctors in eastern Kentucky saying that Coventry is terminating their provider contracts.
