Anyone else notice how asks you to give permission for them to share your information with Medicaid if they have to take you to the hospital for treatment? Looks like Medicaid picks up the tab.
Medicaid also keeps tabs. One day when we finally have universal single-payer medical care (which we should have already had), the back-bite will be that as a condition of enrollment into a study, a subject will have to consent to having said CRU check subject's medical records with Medicaid.
So no longer will subjects be able to lie about that time they "never had" an ingrown toenail.
At least for now we can keep quiet about how we smoked two packs a day ten years ago, drank a 12-pack a day, smoked a joint every day, tripped on LSD once a week... ten years ago. As for now, they can't test for it, so all they have to go by is our word.

with all the billions that a large pharma corporation like makes in profit, i wonder how they can get away with having the government pick up the hospital bills for the participants in their drug trials.
i guess just one more example of what having a crew of well-paid and well-funded lobbyists can do.
Hmm. I am late to this discussion but I have done many clinical trials and signed many consent forms from the late 1990s to the present (2021). Usually these were studies in the NYC, NJ, PA and CT areas but as of more recently I have done studies in NE and TX. I have never seen any paper in a consent form asking for permission to share information with Medicaid. Nor have I heard any clinical trial staff member explain such a thing during consent ( or after). They have asked if I want any medical information shared with any personal physician I may have, but that has always been an option and an applicant volunteer can refuse and it is not supposed to affect his or her chance of being chosen for the paid study.
Do you have any articles or other information about your(or other's) experience with being asked to have data shared with Medicaid ?
