'We Get It': Aetna Apologizes As Kansas Pushes To Fix Medicaid Problems

Aetna Better Health is struggling to keep its Medicaid contract with KanCare, to the point that state officials found fault with Aetna’s recent plan to improve services.

But Kansas lawmakers had two words this week for the company: Keep trying.

At a two-day hearing, health care providers told lawmakers how Aetna isn’t paying them on time. Aetna executives took responsibility for the shortfalls, which have put the company at risk of losing its contract after the state said it wasn’t in compliance and later rejected a proposal to fix the problems.

1. I have Aetna under KanCare...

They are really cheap Bastards,they refuse to pay for two bronchial inhalers that I need for my COPD.
My Dr. was able to get me enough samples of one of them to get me through to my next appointment. They also refuse to pay for some tests on my lungs that my Dr. believes that I need...the hospital said that they would charge me "only" $200 to do these tests but I live on $770 a month...

Monthly bills...
$360 rent
$105 phone
$40 car insurance
$30 electric
$100 groceries

Just where do they think I can afford $200?

Like I said...cheap scamming Bastards!
