RALEIGH, (AP) — North Carolina legislative leaders want more answers from the state Medicaid office about how it intends to comply with requirements from federal regulators about personal care services and how a Medicaid spending shortfall will be closed. The General Assembly's chief state government oversight committee is scheduled Wednesday to hear from state Health and Human Services Secretary Al Delia.

Committee members want a progress report on a federal mandate requiring the state have the same qualifications for in-home recipients of personal care services as for those living in adult care homes. The mandate is supposed to begin May 1, but Gov. Beverly Perdue's administration wants more time.
Perdue's team and legislators also have been at odds over how a $150 million Medicaid shortfall will be filled.
