She still has to go to work, and is told she is considered “essential personnel”. When I asked why she is considered essential, to a point where she has to expose herself to a possible virus, this was the explanation. Medicare or medicaid will not cover the patients she is helping, if they are not getting the necessary therapy.
So instead of more therapists staying at home and staying safe, medicare and medicaid are forcing my wife and many many others to go into work or they will drop the patients coverage. Would it not
make sense for the government to say that they will not drop payments during this pandemic, and keep countless people safe at home??
