Updated: Monday, April 22 2013, 10:48 PM EDT

The controversy surrounding the governor's proposed Medicaid overhaul comes to Asheville.


Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos presented the new plan to a room of hundreds of health care providers at the MAHEC Center. The governor's new proposal would introduce three or four managed care providers, increasing competition. It's a move the secretary supports.


But some in the medical community worry that focusing too much on cost will drive doctors out of the system. Secretary Wos says the new system could save the state more than $1 billion.
