Subject: RE: Town meetings schedules:
Regarding the GAMP program - this is a program for the
indigent that do not qualify for Medicare or Medicaid and
have no other health insurance option. Milwaukee County is
not mandated to have the GAMP program, but it was put into
place after Doyne Hospital was closed to serve the indigent
population. Milwaukee County sees it as a service to
its residents that need health care assistance. again
this is not a mandated or required program for Milwaukee
County, however, it is a program that is necessary and
speaks to the core functions of county government.
Health Care: in America must become more efficient
Below is my historical record of my efforts to improve efficiency within GAMP, to free up millions of wasted money, and redirect them to assist the true intended needy. Executive Walker is not Walking as he's Talking, would Ryan still be Trying?
Below you will find 32 e-mail correspondence concerning my grievance with GAMP -- General Assistance Medical Program Milwaukee. This correspondence begins on June 26 and ends on September 19. Despite my efforts to help them, my inquiries are still virtually unanswered, although somewhat sparingly replied to. It's turning into a bit of a mess, and I am surprised because I only wanted to help them, so I could be helped too.
I tried to understand the inefficiencies and discrepancies between the records of communication; between GAMP and Dr. Deckard office.. I write to request a formal investigation, only because the Gamp Utilization Department instructed me to do so.
Therefore, I wrote again, and again, and again, and so on; my county executive Scott Walker refuses to respond to me, and continues to treat me like a contagious problem. Please read this series of correspondence below, to understand what is going on. Thanks for your time.
I was so delighted that DR Deckard agreed to help me as a professional favor and referral from Dr. Dicus, they both gave me a huge favor. I am embarrassed, insulted, and furious with the way GAMP dealt with Dr. Deckard. Why should this specialist doctor help me for no money, piles of paper work, and the run-around; why would GAMP treat him like with complete disrespect. I feel betrayed.
Without my Governor Doyle's assistance, I would still be seeking diagnosis after six months of being ignored. I politely asked if we could discover why all those communications from my doctors seem to disappear, and why there was inefficient flow communication. I was told to write a letter. I wrote to the County Executive Scott Walkers office, it seemed appropriate as he is in charge of the Milwaukee County. Also he was on a search for money, by slashing budgets, how better to find money than to use an existing budgets, but rather use this money more efficiently!
Since I was given no answers I decided to use my legal right to legally request my own patient information within the gamp bureaucracy, and so I sent them is digitally signed and legal document three times now requesting my patient information. Gamp recognized receipt of this legal document, yet denies it as any paperwork concerning me, they're patient. I told them what I thought of that analysis, as you can read below.
If I must fight them in the courts to determine why things are so inefficient I will, hoping those that follow me will get the support that GAMP was intended to provide as a core function of the community as Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walkers assistant states.
The 31 emails, starting in the Governor Doyle administration, onto General Assistance Medical Program - Milwaukee (GAMP), and then on to the Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker administration, and eventually complaints to the federal government.
It is a joke, except the inefficiency and waste are worth crying for.
