I-"Medicaid Probe - A Cold? Take 3 Doctors Every Hour" - William Sherman - New York Daily News

Disguised as a welfare client complaining of a cold, a reporter with a medicaid card wandered into a group medical office in Ozone Park, Queens, one day last week and asked to see a doctor.The patient was first sent to a foot doctor, then twice to an internist with instructions to come back a third time, and then to a psychiatrist who arranged for weekly visit. On his second visit, the patient was given an electrocardiogram, three blood tests, two urine tests and a chest X-ray.
