Following many years of development, Louisiana finally launched a brand new Medicaid enrollment system on Wednesday.

According to The Advocate, workers no longer have to key functions into an antiquated, circa-1992 disk operating system that created tons of individual determinations and paperwork.

With this new registration arrangement, counselors can guide people through the now state-of-the-art website and those interested in applying can now do so on their own.

We’re told the upgraded enrollment system is so advanced its now being considered as one of the most modernized Medicaid structures in the nation.

 “We needed this system. This was something we knew was an issue at the very beginning of this administration,” said Louisiana Health Secretary Dr. Rebekah Gee.

“It’s a total transformation of what we had.”

Gov. John Bel Edwards reacted to the new enrollment system via Twitter:
