This is mainly directed to those of you in the healthcare field. I am considering a move to the New England area and just want to know if the situation as bad there as here. Just to give you a little background-I have only worked in healthcare field in the state of FL. I work in a densely populated area at a not for profit hospital.

Is it just a FL thing or is there an abundance of people under 65 on Medicare in your state? The majority seem to be on MCR secondary to substance abuse issues; mental health issues or problems related to obesity. I honestly think the number under 65 are catching up with the ones over 65 (and we have alot of people over 65). Also are there Medicaid/govt. plans that physicians/home health agencies actually accept up there? Almost no one here will take them; the hospital ends up doing a ton of charity (and too many recipients have the attitude of entitlement). It's easy to get burned out in these situations.
