On December 14, 2012, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals announced elimination of Medicaid hospice care through June 30, 2014. The cuts go into effect February 1, 2013.  I wonder how the state economists figured this would save the state money.  Those Medicaid patients are still going to die.  But now they will die at the hospital at a reimbursement rate surely higher than hospice.
