  1. This is when legislation needs to think of the carrier to be responsible for high deductibles to be met should a recipient cannot afford the high cost of health insurance. Why should a consumer be forced to go under Medicaid, as that has its bad parts also. The only outlook is to educate the physician and staff. Have them document their patient charts for understanding, besides contacting the health insurance carrier or broker on them finding out on this. Remember physicians took the Hippocratic Oath, to take care of patients.
