The Utah Department of Health can't manage to keep people's Medicaid
information secure as it is. I really don't think exposing even MORE people
to the threat of identity theft due to mishandling of medical information is
very good idea, do you?
It does not matter how good the Medicaid program is in Utah if there is little
access. It is almost impossible to get coverage if you happen to be poor out of
work and male. Utah should expand its medicaid coverge as provided for by the
AHA, just like Arizona has done and for the same reasons.
There may be good solutions out there somewhere. But good solutions will not
leave anyone hanging out with no access to health care as has been the case for
far too long.There may be good solutions out there somewhere. But
given the dismal record of Utah's legislature when it comes to exercising
common sense, I have some trouble being confident they will find any.
Dan may have to access the medical system when he injures his shoulder patting
himself on the back!
