This is a private practice. The owners and midwifes decide who they will take on as a client. This isn't a hospital where you just show up and have a baby. All these women join up early in their pregnancies to receive prenatals and all the medical needs they need throughout the 9 months. Very similar to an OBGYN. The medicaid cap was put on from strictly a business point of view. If you have clients with insurance who will pay you $5,000 or medicaid clients who pay half that. Which one would you do??? From a business standpoint they couldn't turn a profit if the majority of their clients were medicaid that simple. Not without firing staff and offering less services. Having a cap allows them to offer better quality service, employ more staff and turn a profit. It's simple economics. This is something that's happening all over the medical field especially as the people on medicaid rises. Being on medicaid means you won't get top quality service from many areas in the field.

I had been meaning to read "American Sniper" for a while but never got around to it. When I saw that Chris Kyle had been killed, I finally downloaded it and Im about 60% through it. Very good read.
Nuts that he was running around kicking in doors in ****ing Fallujah and then ends up getting killed by a whacko back home.
Does Kyle seem like an overall good guy or a bad guy? Because I've heard some disturbing descriptions of this, particularly his remorselessness, and that he seemed to like his job a little too much.
Nonetheless, we accept pretty much every insurance including Medicare but can not accept Medicaid. The for-profit hospital that hosts our clinic made the decision that Medicaid reimbursement was just so low that they would lose money on most every patient. We do accept Medicaid for children but don't see very many due to the nature of our services.
What shocks me is that on top of the horrific reimbursement rates, the hoops that you have to jump through with Medicaid are ridiculous in trying to get paid. Additionally, their administrative costs have got to be nuts and that goes for Medicare too. That is where commercial insurers gain a huge advantage in my opinion. The government insurers spend most of their money on paperwork and bull crap rather than providing the best care possible by attracting the best doctors, hospitals, and services.

On the other hand it should not make a difference if someone on here is homosexual or not. Once again your attempt to prey a reaction from me is failing. It makes me laugh and smile but it just shows the homophobic tendencies you have and that your IQ level does not even reach that of a door knob.
If that Viagra thing is so important to you why don't you bump the thread up. Obviously you have a hard-on for it.
