Tracking the corporate penetration of Medicaid 1997 - 2010

I've put together as a collection the documentation I used to track corporate expansion into Medicaid.

There are SEC filings for Amerigroup, Centene, Molina, Wellcare, Wellpoint and UnitedHealth between June 2008 and September 2010. These filings are also interested to read in terms of their reporting on ongoing criminal and/or civil litigation.

Trade press articles lauding the profitability of Medicaid go back to 1997. Reports have been coming out fairly regularly since March 2009 on the great growth potential of the sector.

About Me

My photo
I'm the mom of a child with disabilities. Hannah's first neurologist said she might never develop beyond the level of a 2 month old infant, and there wasn't anything I could do about it. The brain damage was just too severe. Nine years later, she walks, uses a touchscreen computer and I've just been shown she can learn to construct sentences and do simple math with the right piece of technology. Along the way, I discovered I needed to teach myself what Hannah's rights to services really were. Learning about early intervention services led to reading about IDEA and then to EPSDT. I've been waiting for the Obama administration to realize the power and potential of EPSDT for the medical rights - including the right to stay at home with their families - of children with disabilities. The health reform people talk about long term care, and the disability people talk about education and employment, but nobody is talking about EPSDT. So I am.
