The article presents information about the health policy problem in the wake of hurricanes Katrina and Rita and the provision of Medicaid to the victims. Senators Charles Grassley and Max Baucus have proposed legislations to extend Medicaid benefits for five months to people who lost their jobs and health insurance and do not meet the states' usual eligibility rules for Medicaid. Extending Medicaid to people who have been left uninsured by the disasters has provoked concern about precedents and cost.
