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
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
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 can't use the drs from the county my Medicaid is through cause I live in a different county and I can't use the ones where I live cause my Medicaid is through a different county and the county line is right at my house depends where you stand in my yard what county your in I called the dr and can't make an appointment myself it has to be the lady from the family success center
