@InsuraneGal32,
InsuraneGal32-

As I understand it, Medicare exists to provide medical services to senior citizens while Medicaid exists to provide medical services to poor people.

As best I understand it, if a covered person receives a medical service from a provider, the service provider is p0aid $x as per Medicare rules.

If instead, someone else received the same service under the Medicaid program, the provider would receive a fewer number of dollars.

Why? To discourage the provider from providing medical services to poor people?

Is Medicaid's total cost per recipient less than Medicare's? Numbers?
