A while ago, I wrote a post on how hard it can be for Medicaid recipients to get medical appointments, because so many physicians limit the number of Medicaid patients they see. They limit the number because Medicaid reimbursement is often, well, crappy! Here is a picture from a recent NEJM piece showing just how crappy reimbursement is in different states:

The outlier – Tennessee. Congrats to that state for paying doctors a fair fee for caring for these needy people.
