Does anyone have Medicaid and have to have a case worker make your first dr appointment? I'm asking because I have been calling and leaving messages with mine and can't get them to call me back. I'm fed up with them gonna try to make my own appointment with my dr in the morning

Have you gotten your insurance card in the mail yet? If you have, the drs will take it and you won't have to go thru them anymore

And the bad part is I'm 16 almost 17 weeks and still haven't got this other place to call me back and as far as I know when a receptionist answers a phone they make appointments not transfer you to another person for you to leave a voicemail and wait for them to call you back to make an appointment I'm really fed up with all of this

If I were you, id go to the drs office anyways. And if they don't ask for a Co-pay then you might be good

Call the doctors office, even if you don't have the card or policy number they can look it up for you, we do it all the time at my office. If it isn't active yet you don't have to pay, they'll bill it and you can just give them your Medicaid number when it becomes active, it covers 90 days retroactive so they'll just resubmit the bill to Medicaid. I've never heard of having to go through DHS to set up an appointment.

Do it online I did and got everything mailed to me and didn't have to wait for a case worker and you get to pick your own doc. All u have to do is call when u get the things in the mail and set up everything then go to whatever doc u want.

It may be only like this in Alabama but I called the drs office a couple weeks ago and they wouldn't make me an appointment when I told them I had Medicaid so maybe if I don't tell them till I get there it will work

I honestly don't think that its true. I would try to call another county and see what they say... It may have been a miss understanding
