Sorry to hear about your mother. Medicaid does cover narcotics...trust me.

I appreciate you took the time to research a response to my post but..the first link deals with patient perception and the second link was from 2002, 8 years ago. Of course you are correct, there is almost always ways around things and people, including physicians, will break the law. But I can tell you from first hand knowledge that physicians employed by hospitals and health systems are not permitted the perks that people think they receive.
The last thing a hospital, health system, or a private practice physician want to risk is being cut-off from receiving Medicare reimbursement. If that occurs they may as well close their doors.

Dr. Rancie Hannah Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital. He is a family Doctor and is an easy score.
I saw this guy one time and "tried" to score some narcotics and he "referred" me to a stupid "pain doctor" but that as_hole wouldn't hook me up, so who ever posted this comment is completely whacked or stoned or tweaking or going thru withdrawals cause this is just wrong.

Dr. Basedow in Ironton is my family Doctor, he doesn't write scripts for opiates very easy. he is very through in his examination and doesn't do anything illegal. if you are looking for an easy score, you better look elsewhere. he is a good honest Doctor who cares about his patients.

Yes it does, it pays for loratab, loracet, soma, xanax,valium, most all controlled substances. Lazy people get them with their insurance, sell them on the street and can make about $1,000 profit a month just by laying on their ass, selling pills, and collecting food stamps!

Medicaid coverages have obviously changed then because in '02 it didn't matter what the circumstance, a recipient didn't get free narcotics.

It's good to know that the taxpayers are required to pay for worthless junkies'/dealers' habits as well as ignorant sluts who keep popping out kids they can't afford.

Wonder what's going to happen when unemployment climbs to rates where there's not enough taxpayers to keep carrying these people?

To Rep and Emo,
Please do a favor for those of us who happen to enjoy the system quite the way it is and would even like to see chenges in the other direction.
When you guys play the "blame game" and try to deflect responsibility for your actions, which by the way is quite cowardly, to be frank, you ruin it for everybody. That is a classic case of snitching on your buddies when YOU got busted.
Emo, you mean to tell me that you were taking oxycontin for years and were oblivious to the fact that it was a nation-wide epidemic, broadcast day and night on the news, and plastered throughout the Internet, which you are obviously no stranger to, and you had no idea what that "ephoric" feeling was that you most surely enjoyed each time you took a pill?
I'm sorry, Emo, but you have either stumbled into a place where you don't belong, and you should just be quiet and play along, while you try to get help for your addiction (I suggest Methadone maintanence, who is adding his thoughts as I write this. We've been there, and realize that there is noone to blame but myself.
And Rep, seriously, Medicaid is the problem? Sorry, you sound like the type of person who sues McDonald's for getting fat.
Don't support his cop-out mentality. We are NOT idiots! Especially in the days of the Internet, there is no way that a doctor or Medicaid, or medashmade is pulling the wool over anyone's eyes. These drugs don't sneak up on anybody, they come down Broadway with flashers on.
I agree with personal responsibility, but there is also governmental responsibility and corporate responsibility. If you'll recall, Purdue Pharma was found negligent by misbranding oxycintin. Yes, they actually said the chance for addiction was the same as all other narcotics/painkillers. They are now paying over $600 million. It's hard to fully blame in individual for making a choice based on bad information, isnt it?

Are you high? No, I never had the euphoric feeling you're talking about. From what I've heard, that comes with snorting them, which I've never done with any drug in my life. They worked for my pain but they also slowly kill you, or so I felt that way personally.

Reread my first post please. I was prescribed the drug in late '98. I had never heard of oxycontin at the time and I completely trusted my doctor, who, at that time, was writing the prescription for many pain sufferers.(He doesn't anymore from what I've heard.) It wasn't long after I was prescribed them that oxycontin started to become big news because the junkies figured out ways to abuse it. I remember in '99 or '00, a nurse at St. Joe's in Lexington told me about her nephew dying from OD'ing by snorting them. That was the first I had heard of how dangerous the drug is for abusers. For people living with real, chronic pain, it's like a miracle drug--for a little while anyway.

I haven't taken them or had a prescription for them in 6 years. I did find a few in the back of a cabinet not long ago. I tossed them out.(I know that just made a few druggies cringe.)
he got high off them lmao
