On the Tendency of Some Folks On Medicaid to Overuse Emergency Room and Ambulance Services
The leftists aren't going to like this but I really think that we need to start charging some modest co-pays for Medicaid services, because right now there is NO incentive for these people to use these benefits prudently and judiciously in that it is the taxpayer who pays for them, NOT THEM. And they don't have to be exorbitant co-pays (maybe $5 for an ER visit or ambulance ride, $3 for an office or clinic visit, $2 for a prescription). Just enough to get them to think before they act, that's all.
