“”State officials have notified clients that they will get coverage for only three of those visits each year starting Saturday. Additional visits will not be covered, and patients may be billed for that care.””
The only reasons I can imagine a person would need to visit the emergency room more than three times per year is:
1. Overdosing on illegal drugs.
2. Bullet or knife wounds from illegal actions.
It seems Washington needs to toss some Medicaid patients into the slammer.
That would be interesting. If you want ER care, you have to first pass a drug test. Would probably clear out the ER real quick.
