Everyday LRA Chief Andy Kopplin is asked why is the Road Home money taking so long. He is especially irritated when Louisiana is compared to our neighbors to the East.

Dir. of N.O. Health Dept.: Health Care Situation Could Get Worse

Dr. Kevin Stevenson says while some areas show signs of improvement, health care providers are still leaving the area.

As bad as the health care crisis is in Louisiana, it could soon get worse. Dr. Kevin Stevenson, Director of the New Orleans Health Department, told thenew995fm.com, "A lot of physicians and providers are now leaving the city. So not only do we have a shortage of them coming back to the city, some of them who are here are leaving because of the uninsured. They don't get reimbursed."
