I had medicaid when I was a kid.
So what did the hospital do? They kept giving me a bunch of expensive tests and exams (unneeded, but my mom didn't know better), which the government would pay for.
Since it kept turning out so expensive, the government cut my medicaid. Hospital wins, I lose. I remember telling my friend, and he said the same thing happened to him. I wonder how many more places this exists, where hospitals take advantage in order to get money.
