Medicaid rewards...chew on this for a while...

So we had an area rep for one one of the states medicaid providers come in and talk to our doctor..here is what we find out..
Women who get their mammograms are getting 25$ gift cards to someplace.
Moms who keep up their kids appts get vouchers for free groceries..
And if they get physicals on time a fucking xbox!!!
Oh boy are our doctors steaming mad, not only do we help pay for the insurance, but now we are buying xboxes and giving gift cards..as if just getting free medical care isn't enough.
I had to get a job and save my $ to buy my ds an xbox.for his bday...and then I couldnt afford his medication (when I wasnt working) no one wanted to help us with a secondary insurance to help him....
Im.sorry....but I'm pissed, our patients have tattooes, lots of jewerly
and most dress well too....wtf is
going On?

So are the taxpayers paying for the gift cards and xbox's too or where does that money come from?

My dh lost his job to company setting hours back and while he is hard core searching for a job and I've already gotten one, my children receive Medicaid. Free xboxes and gift cards? Not here lol!

It is what it is. I just try to be thankful that I have what I have. Its an imperfect system.

My whole family has Medicaid. I've never heard of reward and Medicaid can be a pain in the ass. It took 5 months for my daughters to go through after she was born, they were suppose to compensate me for her bills which they haven't. I'm diabetic, but because of my Medicaid my insulin has to be filled here in tuen and my needles and test strips have to be filled in a town 40 mInutes away. We hav no car and use medical transport, I hav been to a doctor in 5 months for my diabetes. Rescheduled every month, medeise screwed up with the companies and then when I thought of finally get to go they said I was over my yearly limit . THEY COUNTED THE RIDES THE MESSED UP AGAINST MY TIDE LIMIT. I hate having to rely on Medicaid but I can't afford our medical any other way.

Apparently delaware will give you the world.
They make it so no one wants to go to work.
Tomorrow im.gonna see if I can print out the rewards to share.
I think my doctors are going to stop accepting this insurance now in light of this.
