I'm starting this thread for those who are interested and may want to comment or contribute links to articles on the topic.

Here's an article (http://www.alternet.org/story/152245/is_your_state_stealthily_privatizing_medicaid_and_ putting_patients_at_risk_?page=entire) that discusses briefly the problem of privatizing Medicaid, and some of the problems with managed care in general. Many dollars that go into health care, come out of health care through private companies and into the pockets of stockholders. Is that what we want to do with our health care dollars? No wonder we complain about how health care cost has been rising. We really need to look at every place where those dollars are being misplaced. It isn't about greedy doctors, folks, that's the least of a problem.
