Medicaid more interested in money than health care

I have been going to one of the local pain clinics and three doctors have told me I should have a pain pump.

The State of Ohio will not pay for this pain pump even though it is deemed needed by three doctors.

Let’s get the people of Ohio and Ironton who need Medicaid to pay for certain services to actually get those services.

If Medicaid is a federally funded program, why can’t Ohio Medicaid pay its bills in a timely manner?

If this federal program can’t pay its bills, what makes the government think they can pay for universal healthcare?
