Generous no more, Illinois cuts Medicaid spending
A $1.6 billion Medicaid spending cut that Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law Thursday takes a bite out of a relatively generous program and will leave the state with a level of services already familiar elsewhere in the nation.

"Illinois will stop covering chiropractic services, joining 25 other states that don't provide the benefit."
Well its about damn time.
Why did it take so long for Illinois to wake up and see that chiropractic treatments/techniques" like activator, nucca, ak, dnft, network, gonstead etc etc are pure bull crap?
Finally finally finally.
Now they can direct tax payor money to valid and well research treatments and medications.
Now, when will the other states and insurance companies wake up?

Wisdom just proved he's a fraud and liar. The liar, mrwisdom, wrote, "Now they can direct tax payor money to valid and well research treatments and medications."
Wake up, dumb ass. If you haven't heard the news Illinois, last year alone, was bilked to the tune of 7 BILLION dollars by MD's performing unnecessary surgeries due to 'creative billing' by MD's. Look it up, dumb ass. Medicaid paid Illinois chiropractors a total (for all chiropractors) a sum of $250,000--peanuts. That's more than most solo chiropractors make in their first quarter. And that's what medicaid totally paid out last year to chiropractors. Again, who needs it.
I don't know a single chiropractor who EVER accepted medicaid. No loss. Medicaid only paid $8 a visit--who need its? It's mostly treating welfare scammers who breed like rabbits to get more welfare money. You can have them.
Medicaid is a joke.
And while we're at it, ask any dentist if they like medicaid. Or any podiatrist. All of the dentists and podiatrists I know do NOT accept medicaid. It's all one big scam anyway.
Wisdom just proved he's a liar and fraud. Oops, sorry, did I just expose wisdom as a fraud? Oops.

Furthermore, the dumb ass, wisdom, didn't read the article. Most states already cut out podiatry. Illinois only covers podiatry if the patient is a diabetic. Dental care no longer cover adults. Oh, but dentist have all of these bogus prodedures, right mrfraud wisdom?
Wisdom is and has ALWAYS been a liar, a fraud, and a deceiver. Wisdom lies and deceives with each post. He is absolutely a liar. Hey, if I were broke, and on welfare like mrwisdom, I might be mad too. He can't help himself. Wisdom is a liar.

"I don't know a single chiropractor who EVER accepted medicaid. "
Well then you are quite ignorant. I've known plenty. I do know CT wised up several years ago. Ny many years ago.
Then the quack said, " It's mostly treating welfare scammers who breed like rabbits to get more welfare money."
Yeah, especially the disabled folks. You really are the dumb ass. And oh so compassionate. Well, you are a quacker. If you were compassionate, you wouldn't be using those bogus and fraudulent techniques on innocent people.
At least the states are waking up. Enough is enough. Couldn't come any quicker.

The depraved poster, mrwisdom, said, "If you were compassionate, you wouldn't be using those bogus and fraudulent techniques..."
This, coming from mrwisdom who last year wished Dr. Sid Willams, "continued suffering in his wheelchair" following Dr. William's stroke. Real compassionate.
Wisdom made this remark after the Haitian earthquake two years ago. "If they suffer, hey, so what."
That's the same depraved nut job who begs you to believe he's an expert, MD, DC, phd, and head of neurosurgy at a major NY hospital.
Since: Jun 12

More proof wisdom is a massive liar and deceiver.
The dumb ass and fraud, wisdom, doesn't want you to actually read the article. The article exposes wisdom's lies and deception. Note what the article says about medicaid cuts for dentists, podiatrists, nursing homes and HOSPITALS.
"Adult dental care will cease, except for emergencies such as tooth extractions. Illinois joins 16 other states that either don't cover regular adult dental care or have put strict limits on it.
Podiatry will be covered only for patients with diabetes. Eight states don't cover podiatry at all and another 33 states strictly limit coverage.
"You'd be hard-pressed to find any state that hasn't already looked at adult dental, podiatry and chiropractic," Salo said. "These are the first things to go in any state."
Illinois will cut payments to some hospitals and nursing homes."
So tell us more, mrwisdom. Tell us how it's about damn time medicaid stopped covering dental care. Tell us more, mrwisdom. Tell us all, you deceiver, how it's about damn time medicaid stopped covering HOSPITAL services and nursing home services. Yeah, tell us THAT, you dumb ass fraud.
Now tell us how more about those ECCO golf shoes you're so proud of.
A few posts ago, mrwisdom, posting as mrcody, wanted to make us ALL jealous of the brand, spank'n new ecco golf shoes he just bought! WOW, am I impressed!
That's what losers do. They collect welfare and buy ecco golf shoes to impress others.
Man, is mrwisdom pathetic.
Oops, did I just expose mrwisdom as the fraud he's always been? Oops. Oops. Oops. Sorry about that, fraud, er, I mean mrwisdom.
