This is the fourth installment of James O’Keefe’s Medicaid sting and there is no end in sight. This one takes place in Virginia, and as we saw in Ohio, the Carolinas, and NYC the Medicaid workers there are more than willing to help wealthy criminals grab a hunk of government cheese.

As always, this is a must-watch that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief. By now I am convinced it is darn-near impossible to actually get turned away for any reason when walking into a Medicaid office. You could say “I have a stack of corpses in my basement; will that be a problem?” and they’d probably just tell you not to put that on the application.

Still waiting for the media to show an ounce of interest in any of this.

    This guy’s con technique is smooth. I notice in these unedited videos how they all start out giving him correct answers but he quickly gains their confidence so they feel he is “one of them”, simpatico.

    Mr. President, I think here’s a source of waste, fraud and abuse that can be used to enhance revenue for paying down the debt.

    • Anonymous

      It is not waste fraud or abuse. It is redistribution of wealth.

      Seriously – that is what it is. By design.

      Yeah, if they would go and check these people out they would find so many fraudulent cases that yes it would help with our debt crisis. I am sick of this kind of behavior from the government.

    Sadly I am not surprised by any of this, There is really no defense for the workers, even if they, as some people claim, just “scared” or trying to get rid of the person, they do not act scared and could simple state as they should “I am sorry the program is not for you have a nice day” but they do

    I am more alarmed or concerned to the fact she refers to a tax payer funded program as “Obama’s Stuff” like he is a messiah that bestowed on to them the power of medicaid

          She has no clue. They have been given goals. No one will prosecute.

          I know this – first hand.

          • http://www.theancient.us The Ancient

            That is there goal, I just dont think it will end in the way they want.

            and to be perfectly honest we have long past (we past it before obama) the point where America as we know it today could be saved ….

            The only thing that will save the Republic now it is a constitutional Convention by the states to completely change the federal government.

            That WILL happen, it will either be because the government collapses, or because the states get fed up, right now it will be because of total collapse…..

            If a “small government” person gets elected in 2012, AND if the riots do not turn in to a all out civil war since Obama lost, then it may be a states fed up thing, because even the smallest government republican is still a big government person.

              And you do not think the same globalist cabal that has infiltrated and taken down the greatest nation on the planet over the century, won’t simply hijack a Constitutional Convention? It will be child’s play.

                If that is the case then liberty is already dead and this discussion is worthless

                  No. We use the Constitution we have. We exercise the rights and responsibilities we have abdicated for decades. We the people take it back. It will take time and will be hard work. For some it will not be in our lifetimes. There is no easy fix.

    What is most disturbing by this is how she has the answers so readily available to her. He hasn’t even finished asking the question most of the time and she is already telling him how illegal prostitutes, drug dealers and criminals can get around the system to get free government services. Then she is giggling and laughing about it like it’s all a big inside joke. Playing devils advocate she could claim she feared for her life so told him what he wanted to hear but then immediately should have run to her phone and called both local police and the FBI. Which, of course, she did not so she is complicit in criminal activity.

    Dan, stop, I’m laughing so much my ribs hurt. You’re probably right. Tell O’Keefe to try that one next time.

    It seems that any office that distributes tax moneys can be caught in this kind of colusion these days. Clownward & Peeving at their finest. This is what we owe our debt holders for? $14.3 TRILLION !!! We print and borrow and monotize and send in our taxes paid on earnings so scums like these can get their OBAMA MONEY!! Can’t pay vets, can’t pay social security??? Give more in taxes to support more of this!? Obama wants his maypo wah wah.

  • bgulino

    I don’t get it.

    Are you saying that if a man is over 65 and poor, he shouldn’t get medicaid because his son is a drug dealer?

  • ge carroll

    why has it taken us over 22 months to get my father in law on medicaid. He is 92, Aa WW II vet, his monthly income is about 1600 dollars, and he was influenced over 5 years ago to sign his house away to 3 grand sons. There is no way that he doesn’t qualify and yet . . . . . . we are still producing papers and papers and on and on and on and he is in a nursing home and they have all his money and yet..

      It’s just another way for Obama to kill off our elderly, they could give a rat’s ass about what happens to any of us. Take foe instance: A very good friend of mine was diagnosed with cancer, he went to M.D. Anderson to get help, they turned him away because he had assets. He sold everything, filed for bankruptcy, he lost everything he had worked so hard for over the years plus his dignity. He went back to the hospital, got treatment, and the cancer came back, worse now than it was before. Well since he now has a house and vehicle, once again he was turned down. So what is a person to do ?, live in a cardboard box.

  • Brian Jones

    This is amateur stuff.

    The *real* megabucks fraud comes from the operations that obtain patient info through theft or bribery. After that, all you need do is to make the billing codes look plausible and away you go. Medicare/Medicaid pays the claims pretty much automatically and only after the checks have cleared and the thieves are long gone do they sometimes realize they’ve been had.

    Insurance companies are biased toward denying claims, or so the story goes. Even taking that argument at face value, flipping that bias upside down in favor of approving claims is far worse…because the money needed to treat deserving recipients runs out.

    WHY IS THE DATE STAMP January 4, 2007?

  • Anonymous

    It really angers me. I am living on Worker’s Compensation due to a fall breaking both my elbows. I was turned down for Medicaid assistance but did receive Family Health Plus. Reason? They put my income down as double what I said it was. My income is bi-weekly. They put it as weekly. EVERY single time. It is no wonder there is so much fraud. There is no one who can read working in these offices. Oh! I should also mention that they told me that I am eligible for Family Planning Program and I am 62 years old. Guess I need to make my uterus work again eh???

    • rightactions

      If Obama-drones could master basic numbers, they too would fear the debt-bomb they’re creating.

      …they told me that I am eligible for Family Planning Program and I am 62 years old.

      Shh. The Obama-nation is behind on its quota of aborted babies and the feminists they’ve been shagging at Planned Parenthood want their money.

    What alarms me the most is that we have emergency medicare for illegals. Illegals should have their own medical funds. If we went to their country we would have to pay our own way or get shipped out immediately. She is just answering his questions there is no way to know if she is going along with a twisted program or just being a drone. Either way I think this country is going broke because of a system that is willing to pay for anyone or anything as long as the right people are guaranteed to be reelected back into power. Now that is a whole other story and one of great concern, but most people are just dumb and don’t think beyond what a politician tells them with a smile. The people of this country won’t wake up until the cash cow runs dry and they all get kicked off welfare.

    I see people every day who are on medicaid and SSI disability that look young, healthy and employable. I think the dems are more concerned with getting people into programs that make folks dependent on govt than creating conditions under which they would be able to find jobs and work (and actually create a larger tax base).

  • Anonymous

    In all fairness to the Medicaid workers, they are simply pawns in this progressive war they are waging against America. These people workers are trained to get people ONTO the government bank roll. Their very jobs depend on getting more people into these programs. They do not look at the money they disperse as our tax payer money (and in actuality $.44 of every dollars is borrowed money, making it future tax payer money).
    They need to be reprogrammed to have a bias to keep people off the government dole and to point them toward private charities…..
