NY Sex Offenders Receiving Viagra Through Medicaid

WHAT?! The NYS Comptroller's Office has found that 198 of the state’s Level 3 sex offenders are receiving Viagra paid for by Medicaid.

There are three Levels of risk: Level 1 (low), Level 2 (moderate), and Level 3 (high).

Who the Hell is in charge of this?

During a review of Medicaid pharmacy expenditures, Comptroller’s Office auditors discovered that some sex offenders were receiving Medicaid-reimbursed Viagra. The auditors matched the names of Level 3 sex offenders currently listed on the Subdirectory on the Internet with the names of individuals receiving Medicaid and specifically looked for individuals receiving Viagra.

The search found that, for the period January 1, 2000 through March 31, 2005, 198 Level 3 sex offenders received Medicaid-reimbursed Viagra after being convicted of a sexual offense. Among the crimes committed by these sex offenders were crimes with children as young as two years of age and a woman as old as 90 years of age and the crimes ranged from rape in the first degree to sexual touching.
