02/16 - Effects of Expansion: Medicaid in Louisiana

How will the lives of those who now have access to health care change?

In January, Governor John Bel Edwards fulfilled his campaign promise and expanded Medicaid. An estimated 300,000 Louisianians will be eligible for coverage. How will the lives of those who now have access to health care change? What will the expansion mean for the cost of health care and insurance for everyone else in the state? How will hospitals be affected? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers on “Effects of Expansion: Medicaid in Louisiana” airing Wednesday, February 24 at 7 p.m. (Record date: Thursday, February 18)

It’s important that Governor Edwards accept Fedral Medicaid Health Funding for poor tax payers. They deserve it plus it is the will of Almighty God that the fortunate help take care the less fortunate among us.
