I prescribe the drugs, but the patient can’t take them if the pharmacy won’t give them. The pharmacy won’t give them if the patient doesn’t have insurance. The patient can’t get insurance if she has legal problems in getting Medicaid. So while I could theoretically prevent her from getting sick, without LegalHealth it would all be in theory."— Dr. Howard Minkoff, Chairman, Dept. of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Maimonides Medical Center
