At Home

February 1969
National Review Bulletin;2/4/1969, Vol. 21 Issue 4, p14
The article explores the pressing issue of Medicaid within the Nixon Administration. It discusses how Medicaid could take a large chunk out of state budgets and that the program could cost more than what is predicted. Medicaid would also put a larger demand on facilities and take up existing care, leaving out those who truly need it. It comments on how the majority of Medicaid problems have occurred in New York and California and that some states are staying out of the program until the issues can be solved.
