    Instead of reimbursing at such low rates, some of the subsidized plans should be funded by premiums paid by providers. I don't have numbers on this, but in my neck of the woods some of the managed care organizations conspicuously use the Medicaid brand to sell themselves. Just like Walmart is able to sell stuff at a loss, put its competitors out of business, and jack up prices, the large managed care companies are able to take public insurance. Shouldn't they be paying for the right to advertise using Medicaid? Maybe then Medicaid would be in a better position to reimburse at cost.
