  2. Medicaid Pot

    14,000 New Yorkers double-dip into ‘Medicaid Pot” BY Kenneth Lovett DAILY NEWS ALBANY BUREAU CHIEF Wednesday, March 4th 2009, 12:14 AM ALBANY – Nearly 14,000 Medicaid recipients in New York City are double-dipping in other states, a new report found. Florida, Puerto Rico and New Jersey had the most Medicaid recipients also enrolled in New York, an audit by state Controller Thomas DiNapoli’s office revealed. The dual enrollments cost the federal, state and city governments a combined $23.5 million in Medicaid claims from April 2004 through May 2008, the audit found. While some of the claims were legitimate, DiNapoli suspects many were not. In some cases, people may have illegally used the Medicaid program in each state they were enrolled. In others, New York’s more generous program might have covered costs that should have been paid for by other states, DiNapoli said. The city Human Resources Administration has not completed investigations of $11.1 million in possible inappropriate Medicaid managed care premium payments, the audit found. While the enrollees may have been getting services they were not entitled to in New York, the medical providers got the money, DiNapoli said. “The state is facing the worst fiscal crisis of our lifetime,” DiNapoli said. “We can’t afford to waste millions of dollars on people who don’t live here.” The controller said the state Department of Health

    Election Year Medicaid Medicare Inducement issues left open for November not openly discussed.Politics have gone from heated to man on fire thoughts. Also the Judicial dilemmas, since all are offically allowed to bear arms again, the big city Mayors are concerned about how the poor will be able to rearm themselves, and are looking for some type of financial relief from Federal State Medicaid programs to maintain their status quo.The higher courts face tough issues this term since making honest fraud legal, there agenda now turns toward making honest kickbacks and honest bribes equally as legal. This topic remains high as a shared issue by the medicaid medicare enrollment providers since they are looking to expand inducements past the complicated pregnancy stage.

    The DOJ has serious concerns that if legalized marijuana in California for medical reasons could be used as a inducement or inticement to help secure new enrollments for the Federal State Medicare Medicaid programs.The State of California is concerned that if the Feds step up their effort in killing off the marijuana crops it could cause higher tax problems that effect Medicaid currently under consideration by the State ‘marijuana tax control board’. Limo drivers cancel their planned Medicaid Cuts DC rally and leave for California to protect this years crop. Wow, don’t think I would like to be in Politics for this years elections. Govenor Schwarzenegger indicated that if the Tea Partys membership keeps holding their rallies at our Marijuana burning fields they will have to be taxed for their free use of inhalants, prior to having them bused back to Arizona. Senator Mccain wants the deportation of illegal Mexicans to stop immediatley claims their State has gone to POT and insists California return his landscapers at once.

    How many years the politicos WOULD NOT COUNT THE VOTE. Naturally treason has no meaning anymore….yet dear Roger Christie sits convicted without trial in Hawai’i. Plants have more power/bigger brains than politicians. Their fear of truth along with traditional religion horrified at the idea of churches using cannabis worship…suggest the worm is turning.

    How appalling. This shows, once again, how politicians implement their own agendas despite what the voters decide. Why do politicians continue to fight legalization? Do they really think this country will go to hell if cannabis becomes legal? Are we going to have to wait until the economy crumbles under the crippling burden of those incarcerated for small time drug offenses before THEY finally see the error of their ways?

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the only way we are going to make changes is through the states. The smaller the government body, the more in touch they are with the individual. We have to work to get Prop 19 passed in California. It’s the only way we are going to make progress and show these politicians they are wrong.
