End of month will be end of hospice care for some Louisiana patients
NEW ORLEANS -- Starting Feb. 1 Louisiana will stop offering hospice care services to most patients on medicaid.
The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals is eliminating the service to families in the state due to state budget cuts.
Hospice care? They're cutting hospice care?
I just don't have any words for how contemptible this move is.
My mother and my mother-in-law both had hospice care in their last days, I've seen up close how invaluable this service is. I can not imagine what kind of an unfeeling, inhuman reptilian would even consider cutting this amazing service.
The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals say the elimination of hospice care for medicaid patients will mean nearly $3.3 million in savings this year alone.
That's it? $3.3 million? At this point, you're just cutting hospice care for the sake of cutting it! You're causing unnecessary suffering for no reason. I used to think Bobby Jindal was just a moron, but apparently, he's also unbelievably evil.
