Department of Health Secretary Rebekah Gee says the new program automatically confirms your wages and income with Workforce Development and othersBased on those records, if we find that you make too much to qualify for Medicaid, were sending you a letter to say, listen, our records indicate from the last quarter that you may not qualify. Send us information.Gee says the usual turnover for Medicaid is 18,000 people a month, and after running the entire database, this month was 37,000.The Secretary says most of those who no longer qualify are still considered low-wage and income workers, and may qualify for Obamacare subsidies.If you make too much to qualify, then you need to go on Healthcare.gov. You will now qualify for healthcare through the exchange, and you may have to pay a little bit for it.All of those removed from the program qualified under the 2016 Medicaid expansion and are non-elderly adults.Gee says the new system of checks also will make it easier for prospective Medicaid recipients to figure out whether or not they qualify.You get real time data so that you can apply and find out right then and there whether or not you are eligible, versus the old system which was much more difficult to navigate.

AP Gov. John Bel Edwards unveiled a $30 billion budget proposal Friday that would boost education and health care spending and give public school teachers pay raises, but relies on uncertain financing to make the numbers balance.The Democratic governors spending recommendations for the 2019-20 budget year that begins July 1 represent a wish list of sorts, assuming Edwards will eventually break through a logjam with House Republican leaders that has blocked increases to the state income forecast.The last financial forecast for the upcoming year was adopted in June. Those figures, however, dont reflect the recommendations of state economists who expect tax collections to be higher, and theyre missing billions that agencies expect to receive from fees, fines and other revenue sources.Rather than leave huge cuts and gaps across state agencies, the Edwards administration presented an aspirational document about what the governor believes will show up in the treasury and how hed like to spend it.Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne, the governors chief budget adviser, said leaving out money expected to reach state coffers would not be in the publics best interest.It is divorced from reality, Dardenne, who presented the budget on Edwards behalf, told the Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget.Edwards is proposing more than $140 million in spending boosts for K-12 education, including a $1,000 across-the-board pay raise for public school teachers and a $500 salary bump for school support workers. Other dollars would go to block grants for school districts. The governor also recommends $11 million in new public college spending and full financing for the TOPS free college tuition program.State law requires the Revenue Estimating Conference, the state income forecasting panel, to revise the official forecast for the ensuing fiscal year by January. But that hasnt happened.Across four months, House Speaker Taylor Barras or his surrogate has blocked the income forecast changes suggested by economists and sought by Edwards and Republican Senate President John Alario. The changes would make more money available for spending.Barras said hes being cautious, saying he doesnt want to promise agencies money he doesnt feel assured will arrive. He defended his stance Friday.The later we wait in the year, the better we get in our revenue forecasts, said Barras, a New Iberia banker.Edwards calls the move political, amid three years of financial disputes between the Democratic administration and the House GOP leadership.Theres a little gamesmanship going on ... and were going to get past it, the governor said on his monthly radio show.
