Same shiet, different day
I wish you a good loophole or backdoor into the program-it's happening here too, it's like the movie "Brazil"-You'll really be upset when-Dead-is DENIED too! .Have a good night all you Tuttles!
Keep, you stupid mothe--er #$%$()Ker,, why would I lie about a denial ya dumb ba(st)ard,, and guess what,, the insurance companies follow what the govt does, so wait until you get denied for the work up on your cancer,, get used to dying dip shiet,,
Medicare is preferable, Medicaid is next to worthless if you are sick,, the only way I could get those CT's today is if I sent them to the ER,, guess what,, they all went to the ER, boy, that is cost effective,, BUT,, with Obamacare, the ER's are getting close now to having to precert scans,, IN THE GADDAM ER, when you are trying to save someones a*s*s*S ya gotta get on the phone and get permission to get a test, mostly from some fkin high school graduate that obviously doesn't a fkin thing about medicine,, they look in their little cook book,, but yet the patients and lawyers can still sue if ya miss something,, get used to dying,,
Re: "C- Assuming you are in red State WV are they now offering, Expanded Medicaid under the ACA? Just asking because I thought you hillbillies opted out."
Good question, rob:
WV MEDICAID EXPANSION TO BE READY MID-2014
The State Journal, WV
...So how is the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources preparing for this expansion? DHHR cabinet secretary Rocco Fucillo said his staff has started to meet daily to create an implementation plan before Tomblin's announcement.
DHHR already has offices in every county except for a shared office for Brooke and Hancock counties in the Northern Panhandle, so Fucillo said a network for outreach is already in place.
Nancy Adkins with DHHR said enrollment will open in October, and the public will need to apply to see what they qualify for, and everything will need to be up and running by June 1.
Both Fucillo and Adkins said they will be ready by that deadline.
Fucillo said the recent audit of DHHR by Public Works looked at the DHHR over a number of years, and he's only been appointed its chief since July 1 but he welcomes the audit.
He said Tomblin's staff gave his office every opportunity to analyze the report, and he's looking forward to addressing the recommendations in the audit.
Fucillo pointed out that the white paper he created with his vision for the office when he was named to the position has several of the same recommendations the audit made.
"This is an opportunity to make good changes for the state of West Virginia," Fucillo said.
