Medicaid Fraud and the Homeless

Read about it here.

For profit hospitals in The U.S. , sending recruiters out to bring homeless people to the hospital for bogus or minor treatment . Some of the treatments even made healthy people sick. This scam sucked millions from the government medicare system.

So many who can't get medical care and hospitals are stealing money from the system.

Still want two tier health care in Canada?

At least St Mike's hospital in Toronto has an actual out patient clinic for the homeless. You can
get treatment there for anything even if you don't have a health card. Real care, not fake care for profit.



"Still want two tier in Canada?"

This made me snort a little. Endlessly there are policy pundits in the US who say, "still want social medicine like in Canada?"

Yeah our health care system always gets a bad rap in the US.
