His little pea-brain...

Post by T on Sun Mar 02, 2014 10:48 am

*The National Conference of State Legislatures that focused on Medicaid fraud by providers found the (provider) problem was huge.

*75 percent of all health care fraud is committed by medical providers, but Lepage refuses to support legislative proposals that would install more oversight and better surveillance and auditing of Medicaid payments to health care providers.

*If LePage is serious about catching and prosecuting provider-side fraud, he would support installing new checks on the Medicaid system in Maine that would help root out abuse. But, HE IS NOT.  He's gotten it into his little pea-brain that the problem is EBT cards.


*"It's much closer to home when someone believes that the person living four doors down is ripping off the system," State Sen. Roger Katz, R-Augusta said. "It's hard to understand and see the faraway corporate behavior."  

*Of course, LePage can't fathom a cash-flush, profit driven corporation doing anything dishonest.  They are the precious "job creators" and need to be treated with "kid gloves".  The poor? They can go to hell.



*In November 2013, Johnson & Johnson agreed to pay the federal government $2.2 billion to resolve criminal and civil allegations involving the marketing of off-label, unapproved uses of three prescription drugs.

*Maine, according to a report in the Washington Post, would recover $2.8 million from the case, which involved alleged kickbacks to doctors and pharmacies

*LePage's emphasis on the recipients of individual benefits without an equal focus on the provider side is not only unjust, but costly.

 

But it really isn't about the money, is it....  

...It's all about ignorance, bias, bigotry, and hypocrisy... better known as Tea Party IDEOLOGY.
