Medicaid Covered ED Drug Costs for 52 Virginia Sex Offenders

Medicaid paid the costs of Viagra (search) and other prescription erectile dysfunction drugs for 52 men registered as violent sex offenders in Virginia, a state official said Thursday.

Also, Gov. Mark R. Warner (search) issued an emergency order Thursday that bars the state from paying for the drugs for those 52 men under the government program for the poor, elderly and disabled.
