Medicaid Braces For Cuts

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. - A proposal by Congress could lead to a loss of more than $650 million of federal funding for Louisiana's Medicaid program. Check out the story and local reaction from NewsChannel 5's Nolan Crane Tuesday night on the evening newscasts and on kalb.com.  

If approved, programs that care for women with breast and cervical cancer, hospice, and dental programs for the uninsured would be cut.

Steep funding cuts would also take place at LSU public hospitals and rural hospitals throughout Louisiana.
