Kentucky Fried Medicaid: Punish the Patient (Oh and West Virginia Too!)

West Virginia and Kentucky have decided that families must sign contracts promising to show up for doctor's appointments and not to abuse the emergency room by showing up when they don't really have an emergency. Don't want to sign? You'll get less benefits. It's all part of the Republican's version of state innovation in Medicaid: don't cut people from insurance, give them choices!
