Pelican Institute

Medicaid expansion has Louisiana residents dropping their private plans, Rene Amar from the Pelican Institute tells us why.  People that are dropping their private insurance in favor of government funded medicaid is in the 10’s of thousand’s.  Amar talks about how this could potentially cause residents with private sector insurance more money because able bodied people are now joining medicaid.  She explains what should be done about this and what rules should be put in place and discusses the importance of fixing this problem throughout the state.  Hear the full interview here!
