Capitol View: Formula for Care

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- This week on Capitol View, we're joined by investigative reporter Marci Manley who takes us through her series of stories into the algorithm being used by DHS to determine the level of care for elderly and disabled Arkansans.

Through the ARChoices program, Medicaid pays for care hours in people's homes, and DHS oversees it. 

About two years ago, the agency started pairing a computer algorithm with nurse's in-homes assessments. As Working 4 You highlighted, that computer program has resulted in cuts to some people's hours that clients don't seem to understand. 

Plus, we look at the potential impact of President Trump's tax cuts on Arkansas. We also hear from Rep. Vivian Flowers, D-Pine Bluff, about sexual harassment that she says has occurred at the State Capitol.

Capitol View airs Sunday mornings at 8:30 a.m. on KARK-TV directly before NBC's Meet the Press.  It is hosted by Jessi Turnure.

You can watch this week's full episode above.
