The Louisiana House of Representatives this week unanimously passed a bill that will expand Medicaid coverage, including home- and community-based services, to children with disabilities whose parents’ incomes disqualifies them from coverage. Louisiana’s managed Medicaid program currently serves 1,533,075 lives, while an additional 149,046 remain covered through fee-for-service Medicaid. About 36% of the state’s population is enrolled in Medicaid.
