    as a physician and NY Medicaid has never in almost a decade ever rejected a treatment recommendation. She can't say that about any other insurer.

    And it is not true that the majority of Medicaid dollars go to nursing home care; it is actually about a third.

      That's correct, it spends less on nursing homes overall. But per-capita it spends far, far more on each nursing home resident than on (say) sick kids or poor adults.
