Consider Walgreen's for example.
Effective April 16, Walgreens drugstores across the state (WA)won't take any new Medicaid patients, saying that filling their prescriptions is a money-losing proposition
Money losing proposition.
The company, which operates 121 stores in the state, will continue filling Medicaid prescriptions for current patients.
In a news release, Walgreens said its decision to not take new Medicaid patients stemmed from a "continued reduction in reimbursement" under the state's Medicaid program, which reimburses it at less than the break-even point for 95 percent of brand-name medications dispensed to Medicaid patents.
The government's idea of cutting the cost of health care is simply to pay less for services rendered. Doesn't seem like this is going to fly in Washington state.
Sounds like a problem to me.
Change you better believe in.
