Bearing the strain of caring for the 4,000 local people already removed from the Medicaid roll since cuts began last summer won't be easy, said Richard Gram, executive director and chief executive officer of Grace Hill Neighborhood Health Center.By the time the cuts take full effect next year about 90,000 people statewide will have reduced eligibility under Medicaid.Grace Hill will have to scale down the number of physicians it employs and figure out other ways to be more financially efficient, Gram said.Reallocating revenue raised through a proposed cigarette tax might be a solution, Gram said.The benefit would be twofold, he added.First, higher prices would deter smokers, thereby reducing health care costs to begin with and, second, the tax revenue generated would pick up the slack that decreased Medicaid coverage leaves behind, he said.

Richard Gram, president and CEO of a sister agency, Grace Hill Neighborhood Health Centers, said Medicaid cuts would force the closure of five of its medical practices, and that his agency would have to find some way to continue serving the now-uninsured clients.As it is, he said, the agency has to "beg and bargain" with hospitals and medical schools to provide services."It will be a major challenge," he said.Gram said he supports an initiative to raise the state's cigarette tax by 80 cents a pack to pay for prevention and cessation programs and health care.If approved by voters, the tax increase on the November 2006 ballot would raise an estimated $351 million in the first year, proponents say.Gram said the best use of that money would be to attract federal matching dollars for Medicaid so that the 90,000 dropped from the rolls could be signed up again.
