Eddie Rispone on Health Care

 

 


Problems with Medicaid expansion including fraud, abuse

On whether or not to keep Medicaid expansion:

Rispone: Yes. But Rispone said he doesn't believe the cost for the state, a maximum of 10% compared to the federal 90% share, is sustainable. He, too, believes the expansion is wrought with fraud and abuse.

Medicaid expansion "bungled," and is unsustainable

On health care, neither Republican supports rolling back Edwards' Medicaid expansion, but both say the Democrat has bungled the program. "The way it's done is unsustainable," Rispone said. "It's going to go broke if we don't do something. Medicaid is for the people who cannot help themselves - and we keep expanding and expanding and expanding to more than that."

Temporarily freeze Medicaid enrollment in Louisiana

Rispone said he would prefer to "freeze" Medicaid enrollment in Louisiana in order to address concerns about the program's management. He said the freeze would be a situation in which Louisiana would stop enrolling new people into Medicaid, but keep insurance paid up for those already in the program. Once the kinks of the Medicaid program are fixed, then enrollment could continue as usual, according to Rispone. "We would move as fast as possible," he said.
