Ilhan Omar Misquotes Article, Falsely Claims Child ‘Died’ Due to Dropped Medicaid Coverage

Ilhan Omar Misquotes Article, Falsely Claims Child ‘Died’ Due to Dropped Medicaid CoverageRepresentative Ilhan Omar tweeted a link to a New York Times article Thursday morning and falsely claimed a child “died as a direct result of Trump’s cuts to Medicaid and CHIP,” even though the article makes no such claim.After critics pointed out Omar’s inaccuracy on Twitter, her account tweeted an addendum saying the child had “almost died.”> almost died*> > — Rep. Ilhan Omar (@Ilhan) October 24, 2019The Times’ article paints a fearful account of rising uninsurance rates among eligible Medicaid families due to amended paperwork requirements and deportation fears, and implies shifts in policy under the Trump administration are behind the decreasing enrollment. But HHS Administration for Children and Families spokesman told the paper that recent rises are due to factors in individual states.“I went to the E.R. thinking he had insurance. If the receptionist had not seen him turning blue, she might have just said, ‘He’s not covered, so we can’t see him today.’ I do think about that.,” Karen Johnson, the boy’s mother, told The Times. The nine-month old was taken to the intensive care unit for a respiratory virus, treated successfully, and later released.The rest of the story also undercuts Omar’s initial tweet, as the Times reports that “Trump administration officials have not explicitly tried to limit children’s Medicaid coverage.” After an appointment with an enrollment counselor, it was revealed that Johnson had missed a window to provide proof of income to re-enroll her three children.The Johnson’s are now re-enrolled successfully, and Karen is counting on Medicaid to cover the hospital bills retroactively.Medicaid retroactively covers eligible patients up to three months after the month of application.

California Bans State-Sponsored Travel to Iowa over Refusal to Provide Medicaid Coverage for Gender-Reassignment Surgeries

California Bans State-Sponsored Travel to Iowa over Refusal to Provide Medicaid Coverage for Gender-Reassignment SurgeriesCalifornia added an eleventh state to its travel blacklist on Friday, banning state-sponsored travel to Iowa over that state's refusal to cover gender-transition surgeries under its Medicaid program.California attorney general Xavier Becerra announced the decision to add Iowa to the travel-ban list, which takes effect October 4 and means public employees and college students will not be able to travel to Iowa on the taxpayer's dime.In May, Iowa governor Kim Reynolds signed a law blocking Medicaid from paying for gender-reassignment surgeries despite the state Supreme Court's ruling earlier this year in favor of charging taxpayers for the procedures. Gender identity is a protected characteristic under Iowa's Civil Rights Act."The Iowa Legislature has reversed course on what was settled law under the Iowa Civil Rights Act, repealing protections for those seeking gender-affirming healthcare," Becerra said in a statement. "California has taken an unambiguous stand against discrimination and government actions that would enable it."California's travel blacklist stems from a 2016 law allowing the Golden State to ban state travel to other U.S. states that roll back protections for LGBT citizens. Texas, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Mississippi, and Kentucky are also on the list.

A man sees the unimaginable while watching Hurricane Dorian coverage on AccuWeather

A man sees the unimaginable while watching Hurricane Dorian coverage on AccuWeatherRoman Sawyer knew the Abaco Islands, knew the neighborhood around his family's block – "That's my home," he said – but he couldn't comprehend what he was seeing as he watched TV footage of Hurricane Dorian's destruction."I know the landscape, I know the layout, I know where everything was," Sawyer told AccuWeather's Jonathan Petramala, "and I'm seeing all of these aerial pictures, and it's like, ‘Where is this?' This is not my home."Sawyer, now living in West Palm Beach, Florida, was watching the horror more intently than most because he was hoping to find out anything he could about his missing mom.Beverly Bethel's last communication with her family, according to Sawyer, "was on Facebook saying, ‘Help, we need help!'"Sawyer had the worst thoughts of his mom trying to survive Dorian. "I envisioned it with her on the roof, I've envisioned it with her in the roof, I've envisioned it with her inside the house – and none of the scenarios play out with them living," he said.Then, a few days after Hurricane Dorian, Sawyer saw a video on the AccuWeather TV Network that made him break down. His mom was standing in front of the decimated house, talking about all that was lost. Sawyer, however, rejoiced in what was found."I cried. I was just like, thank God," Sawyer told Petramala when he saw the footage."It was a relief seeing her physically, visually seeing her with my eyes and not just having someone say, ‘Hey, she's OK, she's OK.'"All Sawyer had heard about his mom were rumors until he saw her interviewed on AccuWeather. Bethel had been swept off the roof of her home in the storm surge and clung to the roof of a small car, being battered by debris until the eye of the storm came and she and other family members were able to swim to safety."Thank God that's a little bit higher ground" near her home, Bethel told Petramala.Bethel and her relatives have been evacuated from Abaco Island, and she and Sawyer have been able to talk to each other since. Bethel plans to move off the island, once she gets a new passport to replace the one that was lost.For Sawyer, what was found was all that mattered.
