And does it open up the system to fraud that was unintended by the original program?
For instance, it would have been almost unheard of for people to live together prior to marriage when the system was established. People who live with a significant other often lie about it so that his/her income isn't counted toward the income of the household.
How, if at all, has this affected fraud throughout the system, or does the system need to catch up to the standards of today's life? (Is it NOT fraud, because an S/O is legally no more than a roommate, even though, under some state laws that income should still count?)

This is interesting, James Sheehan spoke at the Government Technology Conference on 9/22/2010 at 1:45pm on "The New World of Medicaid Data Mining."
That "new world thing" just keeps popping up, huh?

I think it does. I think a lot more people need it now because our incomes haven't caught up with inflation. More people need it because they are single mothers. I also think there are people who are scamming the system. I didn't know you had to be married to get it, I thought it just mattered who lives in your home.
