Oil Spill

  • Significant short-term impact to industries that depend on the Gulf of Mexico:

    • Fishing, Shrimping, Oystering, Crabbing

    • Tourism

    • Oil and Gas Extraction and Support Activities

  • Long term impacts remain uncertain (much more clarity after one year passes)

Health Reform

  • Significant Expansion of Insurance Coverage

    • 16 million uninsured would purchase insurance through exchanges by 2019

    • 16 million additional people on Medicaid or CHIP by 2019

    • Expansions alone would add $164 billion to the federal deficit in 2018

    • Per capita, uninsured individuals spend 60% less than insured individuals. For the group that would gain coverage, per capita spending would rise by 25-60 percent (bringing their per capita spending to 75-90% of those already insured)

  • Significant reduction in reimbursements

    • Changes to federal spending (including reduced reimbursements) alone would reduce the federal deficit by $116 billion

Net Effect of Health Reform?

  • The big negative and big positive effects are likely of similar magnitude

  • Care within Medicare population may decrease while care will increase for the newly insured

  • Downward cost pressure of reduced reimbursements will likely change the mix of workers needed

Industry Summary

  • Overall effect of recommended changes is an increase in 2018 forecast for statewide employment of 2,422.

  • New Orleans, Shreveport, and Lake Charles RLMAs had increases in overall forecasted employment relative to the current 2018 forecast.

  • Baton Rouge, Alexandria, and Monroe RLMAs had modest decreases to the 2018 forecast resulting from this year’s review.

  • Total forecasted 2018 employment for the Lafayette and Houma RLMAs remained unchanged after review.

  • Changes recommended to staffing patterns

Occupational Changes

  • For Ambulatory Healthcare Services and Hospitals, staffing patterns were changed to reflect:

    • Shift to allied health professionals

    • Increased IT staff to support electronic medical records
