DALLAS (CBS11) – A U.S. Representative is weighing in on the idea of charging a co-pay to Medicaid patients who go to North Texas hospital emergency rooms for non-emergency reasons. Rep. Michael Burgess is also a doctor. The Republican Congressman says part of the issue can be traced back to the implementation of Obamacare.
NORTH TEXAS (CBS11) – Acne, bad breath and ingrown nails: all seem like relatively minor health issues. But a Consumer Justice investigation found millions of taxpayer dollars paying for Medicaid patients to use the emergency room for non-emergency medical attention. Data from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission showed Medicaid patients using ERs in Collin, Dallas, Denton and Tarrant County emergency rooms for just about any health problem.
TARRANT COUNTY, Texas (CBS11) – Wade Bandy runs his garage door repair business out of his home in Arlington. “I had the opportunity to open a business for myself and I took it,” said Bandy. His company is made up of an old truck and a few boxes of parts. But a big bill from Tarrant County threatened all of it. “Do I close the business? Do I say ‘they finally got me?’ This is my dream.” The lawsuit, served by a constable in September, said Bandy owed more than $2,000 in back taxes.
@SarahNavoyCBS@SoniaAzadTV@LindsayLiepman so many great choices!!! Try anywhere in little Italy downtown, eat lunch on the rooftop of George's in La Jolla and go to Oscars in Pacific Beach for the surf and turf tacos.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
