TLIK – “Managed care was the first step towards the universal health care goal. Etc….”
You forgot to mention who started this Garbage!
I’ll do it for you – the DemonCrats & the Clintons.
Amil Zola is a FEMALE. She uses her late husband’s account and has explained this over the years.
As I have posted earlier, Medicaid is a STATE program administering Federal funds.
Here in CT, you must qualify via the means test. Our minimum wage is $13 per hour. If you work 4o hours, chances are you won’t qualify for Medicaid, but can buy a subsidized plan through the state ACA exchange that might cost you as little as $12 per month.
Unlike many other benefits such as SNAP, the state can recover expenses paid through Medicaid if your financial position improves. When you sign up and accept Medicaid you are granting the state a lien on your present and future assets.
As someone who has practiced family law, wills, trusts and estates I deal with Medicaid issues regularly, Most people don’t recognize that Title XIX that pays for nursing homes is Medicaid, The state often ends up owning the home of the nursing home patient who dies. They can claw back 6 years if it has been transferred taking it away from the patient’s children, etc.
This is one of the reasons we suggest placing your home in a trust omce you reach the age of 50
