Clary wrote:TennCare, Tennessee's equivalent of Medicaid, is offering a monthly "sweepstakes" to persuade women between 50-69 to get mammograms, and women between 21 and 64 to get Pap Tests. Every month there is a $50.00 winner from the pool of TennCare (Medicaid/Low-income women)participants ! (How many thousands of dollars of profit there?! ) "You, too, can have a chance to win!..." proclaims the lottery-like announcement.
In the same TennCare publication (not on-line yet) is a separate topic, -- a real push for the "New vaccine for girls" and women between 9 and 26--to encourage TennCare recipients to get the series of 3 shots over a 6 month period for ONE TYPE of virus that CAN cause cervical cancer. The follow-up to the preparatory "Tell Someone" advertising blitz on TV. (Very similar marketing to that for the annual flu shot.)
In the same publication is a reminder that TennCare pays for well-child chekups, and to be sure and get children their checkups at Birth and at 2 to 4 days, and at 1,2,4,6,9,12, 15, 18, and 24 months; and then every year between the ages of 3 and 21! How many possibly escape "the system" with that plan? --or escape the drugging from multiple prescriptions and horrendous nutritional counseling.
I am shocked, appalled, and dismayed that this major "selling of sickness" and "SAD destruction" (including the Milk Marketing to children to be sure they are hooked young, and remain customers all their lifetimes--same plan as "other" drug dealers) is allowed.
