Medicaid patients. On Medicaid, the left and right are in that rare agreement. I also understand that after attending law school ones tryst with simplicity ends forever. There is only so much rigor social science can achieve compared to the physical sciences. Rather, I ask how it is possible that possessing Medicaid makes you worse off than no insurance whatsoever. Plus one is exposed to unintentional billing fraud, audits, compliance and perpetual war with formularies and pharmacies. This point is worth parsing out again. Conversely, if study with a large sample size does not show even a modest effect, it means that the effect probably does not exist.

They were mainly from the local Hispanic and African American communities. Unless she made a nuanced determination to waive fees on an individual basis. Ahh, I asked with that gotcha feeling, why could she not see Medicaid patients for free on the clinic day that she sees other youngsters uncompensated. I am accustomed to US healthcare throwing more plot twisters than Hercule Poirots sleuth work.
