A Liberal's Lament: Medicaid is "So Screwed Up"

February 27, 2012 J

From reading Greg Hinz’s column in Crain’s Chicago Business, it seems as if the Quinn Administration’s Director of the Dept of Human Services, former state Rep. Julie Hamos, has finally come around to our way of thinking… kind of.

Listen to Director Hamos’ words:

“The system is going bankrupt. It’s going to collapse. I really believe that,” she says. The traditional fee-for-service medical delivery system “is killing us,” and key stake-holders are gaming a program filled with “abuse.” She concludes, “It’s soooo screwed up.”

We agree!
