Office of the Revisor of Statutes

The legislature finds that Alzheimer's and other dementia diseases occur in recipients of
medical assistance. The costs the state pays in terms of human suffering, lost productivity, and
medical assistance expenditures are enormous. The legislature also finds that research for the
identification, cause, cure, and prevention of Alzheimer's and other dementia diseases requires
autopsies and pathological studies of suspected victims. Expenses for autopsies and pathological
studies are not provided for recipients of medical assistance.
