145.131 FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.

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.
