In hearings yesterday, state lawmakers questioned the Department of Health and Human Services' hiring of an outside contracting firm without a bid process.

The agency claims the emergency situation with the state’s Medicaid system justified the no-bid $6.8 million contract with Alvarez and Marsal, a  global turnaround management firm. Host Frank Stasio talks with WRAL’s Capitol bureau chief Laura Leslie about the contract and the current state of the Medicaid system.
