37,000 elederly Louisiana residents could be evicted from nursing homes

Officials in Louisiana are preparing this week to send out letters to tens of thousands of elderly and disabled residents to warn them that they could soon lose their Medicaid benefits because of deep health care budget cuts recently passed by the Republican-controlled state House of Representatives.

More than 37,000 Medicaid recipients would be affected by the proposed cuts, including 19,000 people who live in nursing homes and 2,700 people with developmental disabilities, reported The Times-Picayune.

The Louisiana Department of Health said it would be sending out letters to all affected recipients starting Thursday.

“The goal of the department is to give notice to all affected people as soon as possible in order that they begin developing their appropriate plans,” department spokesman Bob Johannessen told The News Star.

TVNL Comment: This, in the richest country in the world.  Horrible.
