Medicaid crisis hits Kentucky

Louisville Courier-Journal, December 3, 2008

Enrollment in Kentucky's Medicaid program is growing at an unprecedented rate of 3,000 members a month, creating a crisis for a state already struggling with a projected $456 million revenue shortfall. State officials blame the economy and job losses for record numbers of people signing up for the program. Medicaid Commissioner Elizabeth Johnson said her department had projected a growth rate of 1,000 people per month for the program, but "it just keeps going up."
