Nursing Home Evictions

BATON ROUGE, LA (KPLC) - The Louisiana House GOP gave a response to the state's address of possible nursing home evictions.

State Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne and Secretary of the Department of Health Dr. Rebekah Gee held a news conference at 1 p.m. to discuss the state's timeline for issuing notices to people at immediate risk of losing coverage that pays for care in a nursing home, group home or home-based services.

Over 30,000 elderly nursing home residents in Louisiana may be evicted due to proposed budget cuts to Medicaid.
