Far too few Medicaid doctors in Manatee County

August 26, 2013 

Does it bother anybody else what a sad country we live in? How many doctors and health clinics take Medicaid in this community? One or two ... maybe!

How many clinics for diabetics or doctors take Medicaid? You could die ... waiting!

Should Gov. Rick Scott and Tallahassee be held accountable for this?

If you have a "sports" injury? No problem. Medicare doctors aplenty!

HIV? Covered!

Diabetes? No! Why? Did anyone choose to be disabled?

I would love to be back at work. Medicaid recipients unite! Let's not stay the second-class citizens we have become.

Doctors who take Medicaid, may God bless you!
