States To Get Medicaid Info From O-Care Site

From a cheering Associated Press:

States to get Medicaid cases from federal website

By Ann Sanner | December 17, 2013

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Federal officials have begun sending Medicaid applications to states so they can enroll people, beginning with a handful of places where technical problems that have marred the new insurance marketplace are expected to be less of an issue.

Until now, the applications were not forwarded as promised to the states, which put the enrollment process in limbo for those who are eligible to get health care coverage through Medicaid.

"This is a step forward," said Matt Salo, executive director of the National Association of Medicaid Directors. "We’re getting closer and closer."

To Cloward-Piven? We have already been told enrollment for Medicaid is vastly outstripping enrollment for Obama-Care. For instance, as of last week, Washington State had signed up almost nine times more people for Medicaid than they had for Obama-Care.

In Kentucky, 82% of the signups have been for Medicaid. And Washington and Kentucky have been trumpeted as Obama-Care’s biggest success stories.

More than 800,000 people have been determined through the state and federal marketplaces to be eligible for Medicaid, the safety-net program for the poor and disabled…

Lest we forget, the AP reported last month that "9 million people will gain coverage through expanded Medicaid next year." (Remember that the goal of Obama-Care is only 7 million sign-ups.)

All of which re-enforces our suspicions that Obama-Care is really just a Trojan Horse to expand Medicaid tremendously.

If low-income insurance shoppers qualified for Medicaid, the federal site was supposed to send their application to the Medicaid agency in their state. But that had yet to happen in the 36 states relying on the federal site.

Now, the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services says it has begun transferring account information to 10 states: Alabama, Delaware, Idaho, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Montana, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and West Virginia…

Yippee! We will now have millions more people dependent upon the taxpayer. And millions more Democrat voters.

However, nobody ever explains how all these new people are going to be paid for. Lest we forget, Medicaid program was already broker than broke. In fact, Medicaid was one of the problems that Obama-Care was supposed to fix.
