Why I do not Like Managed Care

I’m all for capitalism.

I’m all for reducing excessive costs.

I’m all for helping the needy, especially people like me who can’t take care of himself every hour and minute of the day. (That’s not a lie, and if I am cutting myself short – then so be it!)

The problem today is the biggest fear I have that will lead in to year 2020 , the year of the Hopeless Autistic. It’s Managed Care.

Managed care on the abstract, is supposed to improve quality of life for people who have Medicaid plans. Some people who are on Medicaid don’t have a Primary Care Provider or their “doctor”. Also some may be over or even under appropriating their Medicaid funds for their healthcare.

The problem is what was once a state controlled setup is now being outsourced to for-profit companies that have to deliver “shareholder value” in a quarter to quarter basis. Whether or not its based in my state is illrelevent. I’m all for provider diversity, if the company is based in the south, I could care less. I can’t name anyone in the Medicaid system in Concord form a lineup, and as previously mentioned, the power players in Concord do not know the brutal realities in their own state, so that ridiculous argument from the far left moonbats have that DEBUNKED!

The problem is what Medicaid used to be infinite, is now narrow-focused (back to a “cookie cutter” system) and what if your doctor is in one plan or company and another doctor in another?  And imagine the other part of Medicaid that is used for day services for every type of disability? A plan for Asperger’s and a plan for the low IQ, but if you’re in the middle you’re screwed?

I’ve spoken to many professionals in regards to me and they have nothing nice to say about any of the manged care providers. One woman said the New Hampshire Healthy Families was like dealing with a stubborn 3 year old child! That is my managed care provider!

And this is what many autistics are up against when the GOP basically forces the “Tax and Spend Democrats” agenda (without any facts to back it up and use improper English like how I wrote the quoted phrase) and forcing people to “Vote the Gang of Seven [because we will stick to 1950s agenda because ‘it worked’]”

I’m not going to let the Democrats off the hook. Their propaganda is just as bad, blaming the other party and exploiting the special interests for their own “capital.”

The illegal aliens in this state? I don’t think taking them off the rolls will save the state money because I don’t believe there are that many. It’s not to say they should be getting it the first place, I think it’s one of those GOP, templates that is more relevant in other states, but not as relevant as NH. I blame such template agendas on the Clear Channels of the world owning Rush Limbaugh and 700 tiny radio stations that carry cheap programing with cheap agendas and cheap people believing in the cheap agendas on a radio station you can get a better audience of getting a local talent shouting out of the window!

NH’s Generational and Cultural Gap (towards Hopeless Autistics)

I’m somewhat active in the special needs movement (I find the subject more of an overstatement to be honest) in this state. In the last few years as I’ve been more exposed to the insiders and power players, I’ve found out many of these people are aging Baby Boomers who had kids ether in the state’s institution for the developmentally disabled or didn’t and help fight to close it. That institution was the Laconia State School that opened in the turn of the 20th Century and closed in 1991. (for now on, I will refrain from using “LSS” or “Laconia State School” such place in my opinion has escalated to a cliche – especially to the younger generation.)

Which leads to me where I feel there is a disconnect to the special interests groups who have “fought” the system (i.e. being very aggressive  – more aggressive than I can ever be) and won by having the place close down. Meaning a new evil would loom within a couple of years.
