Debit cards reward Medicaid patients for care

Associated Press, September 1, 2009
Some Indiana Medicaid patients can now earn money to spend on healthcare simply by visiting the doctor or seeking routine preventive care. Managed Health Services has announced a new debit card program that rewards patients for making regular trips to the doctor, taking their babies in for checkups, and getting screened for several conditions. Participants can earn between $10 and $20 on their cards for each visit or screening. They can then use the funds to buy health-related items like cough syrup or thermometers.
