An independent analysis finds Utah’s Medicaid program is using state resources efficiently. The findings were released this week by Voices for Utah Children, a nonpartisan, advocacy organization.
The report’s author Allison Rowland thinks the data on Medicaid tells a different story than the rhetoric often heard from politicians.
Jack Brown and his wife Martha of Sandy are 74 years old and well into retirement. The Browns have raised five children and 23 grandchildren."I thought we were finished raising children," Jack Brown said.But on this day, in the offices of Voices for Utah Children, the Browns have two little boys clinging to their arms and legs - 9-year-old Austin and 10-year-old Jordan. "At an early age - in fact when they began to talk - my wife would call them Honey, and so they started calling her Honey," said Brown, "She's Honey, and I'm Papa."
