  •  I remain confused as to why MCD is a burden (9+ / 0-)

    to the state; the states I am familiar with receive $2 or $3 for each $1 they spend in federal funds.  It would seem MCD would be a cash cow since the alternative is to either have uninsured pts dying or having them hospitalized for acute care, both of which are very expensive in the long run.

    •  The states have to pay 10% I think and then 20% (0+ / 0-)

      and more as the years pass.  The federal money decreases as time goes on.....at least that is my understanding.  I could be wrong.
