Not to worry. Go buy that new car.
Murray politicians have taken care of you. With a the new tax coming in with the "Liquor Tax"----"All is well"
What a great idea to bring in money: "Selling liquor to college kids"

One thing they might want to do to save money is get some medical billers that know what the hell they are doing. My daughter was in the hospital for 6 days with MRSA & was prescribed Zyvox IV drugs every day she was in the hospital. Zyvox is the only drug that treats MRSA & it's around $5000 per bag or $94 per pill. I requested an itemized billing statement so I could see what was filed for her entire hospital stay. While looking at the bill I realized it was about $30,000 less than it should have been. The biller entered that we was charged for Zyvox but they only charged for 1 Zyvox pill with one $94 charge. Insurance would have paid for the IV meds but obviously there is a problem with the billing....$30,000....how does someone not bill $30,000 worth of medicine? Crazy!

Nobody has been charged $30 for Tylenol, the are $2.50, and food trays are $7.25. Check your itemized bill, rumors that are false do not solve anything.
Years ago, I was in the Murray hospital and had an allergic reaction to the medicine that they gave me and they had to put a humidifier in my room and they charged me every time someone had to come in the room and refill it with tap water.

I don't know if things have changed since then because if I ever need to be in the hospital again it will be one of the Nashville hospitals.

Is your daughter bisexual? You called it he?
Your argument loses any value when you can't even get the gender of your child right.

Actually, they have said they may cut some services... don't believe they said there would be layoffs.

Can you give me the link to the ch 6 story?

Everyone better open their eyes and see what is happening. Not only hospitals but other health care facilities and drs will no longer take many insurance cards. Humana which is what all state employees and teachers have are being rejected for care at many places now. Just wait till next year when Obamacare starts.

Someone sounds like a pissy little bitch. I treat people with disorders ranging from mild to severe. It can be disabling. That you say something so outlandishly ignorant says you lack education and any sense about you.
The real issue with MCCH is two fold.
One that the CEO lacks any sense of how to run MCCH. He spends most of his time just trying to play catch up that he doesn't get any real work done.
Two that the managed care groups KY signed a deal with haven't paid up in over a year. That when they do it is often less than 1/15th the value of what was given. That's if they pay. KY Spirit hasn't ever made a payment. But they did take over 100 million from the state. Payed out less than 2 million and are suing the state for more.
You are what? A low level cook. Maybe a clerk. You are not a nurse. There is no way anyone with training would say something so willfully ignorant. Be ashamed of yourself young person.
You also understand that everyone pays for disability insurance? Insurance. Key word. You cannot collect it if you never paid into it. These people more than not have worked for years until a event crippled them. We have vets that collect from suffering P.T.S.D. to those that have degrees in a wide array of fields that have had total breakdowns. These people aren't just given a check. It takes years to apply and be accepted and even then most, over 94% of such claims are turned down. Those that are have real and dangerous issues. Shame on you.
Although I do not agree with everything that they have stated, I must disagree with you on some issues also. I have worked in Mental Health for 4 years. And if you have noticed, some of the people that receive benefits for a social disorder have never worked, and are in their early 20's. They have some forms of disorders, but are simply following the life styles of their parents. I receive about 30 to 40% of claims per year that simply turn out to be drug related not physical or mental disabilities. While that person may lack in years of experience or shallow thinking, you are blindly expressing your opinion as they have.

I think that the problems with MCCH are still related to the board and their failing attempts to manage a hospital without any type of education related to healthcare administration. Not the patients, disabled or otherwise.

Thank god !!! Someone sees it for what it is !! I know there are people disabled, I am one of them. I have had two back surgerys, still have four ruptured discs, a sciatic nerve that won't stop its devastation to my life. I can't drive twenty miles without my hands going completely numb due to the irreversible nerve damage yet I am still fighting for my disability. A wonderful neurosurgeon has found me 100% disabled as well as my regular doctor and neurologist. I worked all my life as a nurse. Worked some job since I was 15 years old. I get denied because I'm 44 years old and have an education. Meanwhile I have four cousins younger than me that have been receiving disability for the past ten years because they are drug addicts. I had one cousin receive over 40,000 in back pay and it was shot in her arms within two months. Meanwhile having a disabled daughter at home that is totally neglected. My cousins have never worked a day I their life. Yet they draw two checks plus one on her daughter , who is deserving of it, just needs a different guardian over it. By the first week of the month the money, totaling over 2,500 is gone on drugs. Her daughter had clothes with holes in them and shoes three sides to small for her crippled feet. I forgot to add her husband works a carpentry job, subs, and brings home $1500 a week cash that he hands to her to support her habit. Gets better. They draw over $700 a month In foodstamps which they buy soda with and sell to the local country stores. They all live in eastern Kentucky. And yes I have reported all this but the system just doesn't care. They did do a well fare check on the disabled daughter after I begged them to but found bottled water in the house and the fact that they had no electric or sewage didn't make a difference. Because they had bottled water snd crackers they were considered to be providing for her. They somehow get assistance to pay utilities at times but when there is no assistance they have no electric. My concern is for the daughter. She is 19 with the mentality of a six year old. Authentically disabled. I told my husband I would do better to become an addict for a year then I could get the medical coverage I need for my surgeries. They run out of drugs and they go directly to the er using Medicaid to get more. They have even had teeth unnecessarily removed to get narcotics. Our system is totally screwed. I've worked all my life and now that I'm unable to work I'm not even entitled to the money i have paid in for all those years. Completely fed up with this whole system !!!!! Abused by so many people at the expense of those that truly deserve it !!!

Just a sad situation. Many people don't have health insurance because they cannot afford it. If they can't afford insurance, in most cases they can't afford to pay their medical bills. I wouldn't be so quick to judge people when we might be the one in the same situation next. Just my opinion. It's a scary time for many not knowing.
Thank You!

that's the way it goes. I know of people that get on it young for being on dope, and like you said people that can't hardly get around can't get on it. you need a good lawyer. the one in cadiz has helped a lot of people, and he don't get paid unless you do.
