“[N]o government agency has the right to complain that middle class people choose to voluntarily inflict poverty on themselves, when it is the government itself which has established the rule that poverty is a prerequisite to the receipt of government assistance in defraying the costs of ruinously expensive but absolutely essential medical care.” In re Shah, 257 A.D.2d 275 (2d Dep’t 1999), order aff'd, 95 N.Y. 2d 148 (2000).
