I find it interesting that there are two groups of people who have no problems at getting medical care. They includes people who have great medical insurance coverage and those on Medicaid, who also have full medical care that include dental, vision, prescriptions and specialist care.
But for those on Medicare who have worked most of their life and are presently disabled, they are not covered for certain medical care when in need; in fact I was a witness to this.
When I was treated at a local hospital emergency room and I was advised to see a specialist to treat an injury, I called the doctor for an appointment only to be refused since the primary coverage was Medicare, with another insurance coverage as a secondary coverage. I had to go to WCA in Jamestown to be treated for the injury by a specialist.
But since I pays taxes toward welfare, but yet do not qualify for vision, dental care or certain medical care in state since my primary coverage is Medicare that I pay for, I cannot get quality medical care from a specialist. However, if I got free Medicaid I could be treated by any doctor free of charge with quality vision and dental care as well.
What is wrong with our government and some of the medical doctors who pledged to treat the ill or injured in New York state ?
