Medicaid Issue Discussed

Louisiana residents who rely on Medicaid: Your new Bayou Health Managed Care plan may not cover your medicines.

That’s because instead of upholding legislatively-approved protections for the doctor-patient relationship, cost-savings are supreme! The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals has allowed these new plans to create additional roadblocks to patient access to medications.

The aim of this new plan should be to increase patient access to prescribed medicines, because medicines keep patients independent and out of institutions.That is what decreases health care costs!
