  •  Private Healthcare Insurance Database (0+ / 0-)

    I understand the difference between Medicare and Medicaid.  But most likely there will be a database
    where medicaid eligible recipients can go to for
    info............really how else do you think it will be organized?  Each participating state on their website surely will have a list of approved private insurance medicaid providers for people to choose from....and each will have a description and services listed and most likely a 5 star rating choice for reviews.  Pages and maybe pages on line of providers............

    Imagine the confusion.  I am just suggesting that if
    an HMO is listed or offered...and it has a $10 co-pay you will be much better off than doling out $ for a plan with deductible.  It just all depends on needs.  And if one has to go into hospital, emergency room, out-patient care, etc.

    And to boot there may be an option to change providers every year......  Maybe you have a better suggestion but I have done my homework.

    •  Are you going to cover the bus fare to the library (0+ / 0-)

      for those people so they can do their research?  Oh, and good luck even getting on those sites with the library's 5 year old computers as you know they will rely heavily on flash including h.264 video.

        You can sit and ring your hands or help yourself.  If this is the way it is gonna be re Medicaid and you need medical help........get informed.  

        •  So they should just go hungry if they have to (0+ / 0-)

          choose between going to the library to research different plans and going to get food at the grocery store?  Because that is the kind of thing we are talking about here.
