(Des Moines, IA)  --  Two Medicaid managed care organizations are being called out for not helping two quadriplegics in Iowa.  State Auditor Rob Sand has sent a letter to the Department of Human Services outlining problems regarding what Amerigroup and United HealthCare aren't providing.  Sand says the MCOs are pushing each person to move into a nursing home after they received notices they would no longer receive services.  Sand says a United HealthCare member goes to a hospital every day just so they can be dressed and cleaned.
