Medicaid is the subject of a lot of talk in today's political environment. Sadly much of what is said isn't based in fact, or it focuses on parts of the program that represent a tiny portion of its cost. 

Today, 2 Docs Talk about Medicaid, who it serves, and how it was affected (or, rather, supposed to be affected) by the Affordable Care Act.

If you've had many conversations about healthcare reform, it is likely you've heard some variation on this theme: 

"Hospitals have to provide care for people who show up. So everyone can get healthcare when they need it. So when people say that can't get healthcare, that isn't true."

Is there any merit to that argument? Spoiler: NO. But if you want to hear more about where that idea comes from, take a listen.
