Medicaid rewards...chew on this for a while...
October 8, 2012 at 10:01 PM
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?

    I don't like the rewards. I do see why they are doing it but I don't think its right.

    When I was on Medicaid with DD, all I got was a threat that if I didn't stay on top of her appointments that they'd end my benefits.  The way it should be, IMO.

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

    Are you in Louisiana?  We are in Louisiana, DH is a pediatrician.  I have heard about the rewards, but I didn't hear about any as large as an Xbox.
