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?

That's it.


Quoting rayroe2:

 I am lost....so if a patient is on medicaid they get these things....so the other patients who don't have medicaid but do the same thing don't get that?

Which county? Pm me


Quoting PixieKiss403:

WTF!!!! That pisses me off so bad!!!! I have seen major abuse of the Medicaid system it is unreal!!!! I had patients come in with a sick baby with a fever so they could get a prescription for Tylenol because then its "free"!!! While the parents laughed and talked on their iPhones with their Coach purses and packs of cigarettes!!! So now we (meaning the taxpayers) are paying for an ER visit (which could run hundreds and possibly thousands) for a prescription for a $5.00 bottle of Tylenol!!!! Which costs less than a pack of their cigarettes!!!!! And NOW let's reward these parents for doing what the SHOULD be doing anyway!!!



OMG!!! I have to stop because I am getting REALLY mad now!!!



I paid to go to the doctor and got a prescription for meds for pink eye. With my insurance it cost $60!!! I said no thanks! I couldn't justify taking food out of my kids mouths for a prescription for me! And I work full time in the medical field.



My kids don't even have an Xbox!



UGH!!!!



And we are in the same state mama!!!

Damn.. I wish I qualified for that instead of our regular insurance... Our co-pay is ridiculous, and doesn't cover anything.. still had to pay over $300 for some tests I had earlier in the year.. :(

And where does the "federal" money come from???????? Please!


Quoting BewitchedKisses:


Quoting BlessedMommyNE:

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

It's not coming from taxpayer money. Medacaid is usually dispensed by private insurance companies with contracts for it. The companies pay out the benefits so that people will choose them for the Medacaid coverage and they will get the federal dollars.
