medicaid doesn't pay everything in every state. states are different in their management.
and there is the cost of gasoline to even go to the doctor let alone specialist in a nearby town. pretty sure medicaid recipients count every penny and try as well as any to maintain their health.
if family and charity could do it there wouldn't be people in wheelchairs trying to stop this horrible tax bill.
