    Many chronic conditions go untreated because of lack of healthcare. Emergency rooms treat acute conditions. Ask the increasing numbers of asthmatics and diabetics to define chronic. They know the meaning of the word.

    There are many long-term unemployed who do not qualify for Medicaid. Their children do, but not the adults in the household. 401(k)? IRA? That's likely enough assets to keep you off of Medicaid. Getting help from relatives? That unearned income will likely keep you off of Medicaid.
