THERE IS NO FINANCIAL CRISIS IN THE MASSACJHUSTTS MEDICAID ACCOUNT CONTRARY THAT IS BEING REPORTED. THE REAL PROBLEM IS A LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY AND OVERSIGHT IN EXPENDITURES. WASTE, FRAUD, ABUSE, INEFFICIENCY, AND MISMANAGEMENT MUST BE ADDRESSED.
There is no financial crisis in the Medicaid account. Those needing services, concern, care, compassion, the legislature, and taxpayers continue to be ripped off. The Patrick Administration like previous Democratic and Republican Administrations come and go and nothing is done.
Stop the Crying and Do Something. Those groups like the New York Union Local 1199 who get dues monies to represent their members for political campaigns and courting the politicians with no results are going in the wrong direction. The embattled AARP who sell insurance and allege to represent seniors do little or nothing. The Home Care Federation of sellers and recipient of dollars know better.
Year after year those needing services continue to be battered. Instead of cuts or more and more dollars being demanded address the issue. Solve the problem that no one is addressing for these federal and state tax dollars.
Will one of you so called advocates Blow the Whistle that Federal, State, and Citizen Watchdogs have been pleading about for years that is not addressed and the alleged problem will be on the path to be solved. Inefficiency, waste, fraud, abuse, transparency, oversight, and accountability must be addressed head on. I have seen savings proposed by credible watchdogs to be estimated from ¾ of a $Billion to close to $2 Billion.
I challenge to be corrected and will correct my comments if proved inaccurate.
