Public Citizen Report Rates Indiana

Last updated on Friday, April 20, 2007

(FORT WAYNE) - A consumer watchdog group is ranking Indiana in last place when it comes to Medicaid eligibility.

The state is also placed 45th in its overall performance in the government health care plan for the needy. The Public Citizen Report denounces Indiana for excluding ``those made poor by extreme medical expenses.''

However, the state ranked above average for quality of care at 16th. Public Citizen gathered data for the report in 2004 and 2005. The Daniels administration took office in January 2005.
