From the consumer helpline: Medicaid consumers being charged

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Two calls just this morning came from consumers covered by Medicaid being charged by hospitals. One was a mother on HUSKY Part A charged $281 by a hospital for services she already received. But the first call was from a man on Medicaid who was told by the hospital that they would not schedule the second surgery he needs to heal an injury and get back to work until he pays $2,000 up front. They were both sent to the appropriate authorities and strongly urged to call their Senator and Representative as well.
