Damn! Quick! Call a doctor! That would not be a pretty sight.

If you worked LEGALLY, you qualify for emergency ESRD SSI which will pay for your dialysis for the rest of you life and every dialysis center knows this. EVEN IF YOU WORKED FOR MINIMUM WAGES. BUT IF YOU WORKED AND DID NOT PAY TAXES SO YOU COULD TAKE MORE MONEY HOME , HOPING TO FLEECE TAX PAYING CITIZENS THEN NO BENEFITS FOR YOU IS WHAT HAPPENS. I work as a social worker and I see it all the time noncitizen aliens working without paying taxes and expecting to get benefits. SO Benicar, if you are not able to qualify for the free SSI ESRD care it's because you tried to fleece us taxpaying citizens. The only option I have found is to go online looking for dialysis centers in Mexico. As a matter of fact, that is how I found this thread, looking for dialysis for an illegals and noncitizen people from Mexico who worked for just as many years as you did, some even more, but they did not pay taxes.
Speaking of how long we've worked, I've worked for over 40 years and will probably never see a penny of it. My retirement got used up due to a ill family member, so when I'm unable to work any more, the money I paid in will not be there to help take care of me or other retirees- It looks like we will be left to rot somewhere while our money is being spent on undeserving people.

Thank you. I worked in the billing department of one of the biggest dialysis providers in the world. They will furnish services even if the person is no way capable of affording it. Dialysis is very costly, one of my patients had already used over a million dollars worth of services. Some of them did not have SSNs. What does that tell you?!

I now work for a billing company for Home Health Agencies in the Boston area. Most patients do not qualify for Medicare because they are not citizens but they do qualify for Medicaid. Most of them do not have Social Security numbers, or ones that do, they number does not match the name - we know this because we have to run eligibilities on all patients that are taken under care. Who is footing all of those bills? The American taxpayer. We also have to send nurses who are bilingual because most of these patients do not speak English. Most of the patients are Spanish speakers. Some are also Russian.

People like to talk and say they are not abusing the services, but they are wrong.

For some reason our government has decided that. The same government that has done a very poor job creating the jobs for unemployed Americans wants to bring in as many of the world's indigent that will come.

Obama seems now to have forgotten his promise to create jobs. He cannot pay down the huge national debt, cannot control spending but he apparently believes he can get foreigners some big amnesty and their easy citizenship rewards.

Please explain the bolded sentence, and how I, a taxpayer for MANY, MANY years, have fleeced the taxpayers of this country. Also, please explain how you, a total stranger, came to this conclusion. Furthermore, I would not expect to receive “free” kidney dialysis or any other medical care. I await your response, but I certainly won’t hold my breath.

The residents and voters of Massachusetts[any state] foot the bills. If the residents of Ma dont want to cover Dialysis[a condition coverd under Ma S-Chip], then they are capable to choose that option...correct?
