"It's targeting people who don't necessarily have voices, and it's taking the wrong approach ... The whole notion that someone is sitting around saying, 'I want to be on Medicaid so I'm not going to work' is, in my opinion, a ridiculous thing. Statistics show that people who aren't aged, blind, or disabled -- the vast majority of them are working." - ConsejoSano's SVP, Strategy, Gary Rosenfield

This could be a big hit to their revenue." More in AIS Health.
