WOW that long? I went to one of those pregnancy testing centers, which I didnt know until I walked in that each one is a referral center for a different hospital, and if you want to have your baby at that hospital, they help you complete all paperwork including getting signed up for Medicaid, so thats what I did,They give you a paper saying "your pending Medicaid" meaning you have signed up but not sure if you will get covered, they have you sign a paper tho, saying if your not covered then you are liable for all expenses for dr visits made while you were pending. make sense?
Anyway Exactly one week after I filled out the paperwork, I got the medicaid papers in the mail. At that point you choose your health plan that you want and then that process takes 30-45 days but while your waiting you have "traditional Medicaid" so you just make sure that the dr your seeing takes "traditional mediciad" for the time being and make sure they take the health plan you chose.
Ok.......I really thought the whole Medicaid process and stuff would be hard to get and Id get the run around cause I always hear complaints but actually Ive gotten really good service soo far. Keep in mind you can change your healthplan up to 3 times I believe, in case your not happy with the one you chose.

Quoting Brystal: wow, when did they change that? When I had my son and was on medicaid they paid for everything...including the circumcision. That was a plus because those few snips cost almost $600.00..lol
