Indiana Man Wins Lengthy Dispute With Medicaid

A 38-year-old Pike County, Indiana, man who was paralyzed form the chest down in a car accident earlier this year won a long and tedious battle against Medicaid this week. According to Tristate 25 News, Medicaid will now assist with getting the man moved to a hospital facility where he can better recover from his injuries.

It all started in August, when the man fell asleep at the wheel and crashed his vehicle. The accident severed the man’s spinal cord, leaving him paralyzed. Since then, he has been receiving treatment at Deaconess Hospital. The man now faces a problem–the facility can no longer offer him any rehabilitation, as they do not specialize in spinal cord injuries.

The other problem standing in the man’s way was that Medicaid, refused to pay for a transfer to an out of state specialist. After lengthy debate, both sides agreed to a compromise and Medicaid said they would pay for a transfer to a rehabilitation facility in Centerville, Indiana.

The story points out the growing number of Medicaid claim denials that are being handed down to those truly in need because of funding cuts.
