And how is Medicaid?

Its a government run system too, so it sucks just as bad.

The only big difference, IIRC, medicaid can vary widely from state to state. For example, reimbursement rates differ greatly (for example, labor epidurals) between Texas and Louisiana. Since my hospital is about 30 miles from the border, we occasionally get Texas Medicaid patients (fortunately much less since the retirement of one jackwagon). The reimbursement rate is so low, that I would be minus $$$ after paying my billing agent to handle the paperwork.

Then throw on top all the paperwork and cost involved just to be a Texas Medicaid doctor and its a tails you win heads I lose scenario.
