Positive feedback: a missing prescription for improving medicine

** ADVANCE FOR SUNDAY, APRIL 10** Dr. Sara Weisenberger shares a laugh with Tiffany Jones of Jackson as her five-week old daughter Cailyn naps during a checkup at the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children in Jackson, Miss., Friday, April 8, 2011. Speaking for the state pediatricians’ group, Weisenberger outlined several scenarios in which MississippiCAN’s prescription policies interrupted a patient’s regimen. The group also notes Magnolia, UnitedHealthcare and the state Medicaid program all have different lists for approved prescription drugs, and that MississippiCAN fails to give doctors enough choices in prescriptions the program will cover.
