Louisiana Tells Congress: Stop Healthcare Discrimination
Date:7/22/2009

cy-Ann DeParle pledged to abolish healthcare discrimination.

Dr. Sheldon Hersh, NACDEP President said, "Most dually eligible people in my New Orleans practice are elderly African-American grandmothers. Out of 40 dually eligible patients, 39 are African American, and 33 are women. One woman is 99 years old. Another woman is 103 years old. Decreasing healthcare access threatens their lives and is morally unjust."

NACDEP's plan will restore access, stop civil rights violations, decrease government-induced healthcare disparities, and help state Medicaid agencies -- at little cost to taxpayers. All Medicare beneficiaries worked, paid taxes, and earned the same Medicare benefits. NACDEP applauds Louisiana for leading the nation in healthcare justice for five million frail people.

About NACDEP

NACDEP is a Louisiana not-for-profit, educational organization dedicated to improving health care for dually eligible people with Medicare and Medicaid.
