I'm sorry but I have to say that Medicaid recipients abuse the system. I got a call from a friend who said that she couldn't come over because this lady who happens to be her neighbor had to go to the hospital to give birth. My friend says that this lady call 911 and had the ambulance pick her up. This lady's husband was there too. My friend says that she is completely sure that they staged this so they didn't have to pay for the taxi. Now my friend is taking care of the other children as a favor.
What do you think?

I loathe misuse of the EMS. These services are for emergencies only, not a free ride and front door service to the nearest facility. Unless your baby is crowning, delivery does not constitute an emergency requiring an ambulance ride to the hospital. Every Time someone ties up the system with a bogus call (in CA you can not refuse them a ride), the possibility increases that someone with a true emergency will die waiting. I have a brother who is a FF in a large city in CA, he says they routinely get calls to transport people with sore throats and rashes...most of the time frequent flyers (repeat offenders).
