MEDICAID BILLS-VO

AT THE STATE CAPITOL TODAY TWO SEPARATE PANELS DISCUSSED MEASURES DESIGNED TO EXPAND LOUISIANA'S MEDICAID SYSTEM UNDER THE FEDERAL AFFORDABLE CARE ACT...

THE HOUSE HEALTH CARE COMMITTEE VOTED DOWN A PROPOSAL TO EXPAND MEDICAID.

WHILE, A SENATE PANEL DELAYED ITS DECISION ON THE IDEA UNTIL NEXT WEEK.

OPPONENTS, INCLUDING GOVERNOR BOBBY JINDAL, SAY EXPANSION WOULD BE TOO COSTLY AND WOULD AFFECT AN INEFFICIENT PROGRAM.

SUPPORTERS SAY IT COULD SAVE MONEY WHILE OFFERING INSURANCE TO THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE IT.
