medicaid in florida

Hello. I was wondering if youre on medicaid do they have your doc drug test you every apt? Or do they only test you once when pregnancy occurs and once at hospital? My friend smoked weed daily then found out she was pregnant and confirmed it by her doctor. At her following apt her doc brought up that there was marijuana in her urine. Was this done by her doc or by the place she was sent to get blood tests done? She has quit smoking but occasionally will smoke due to the nausea and anxiety. She's now worried that her doc has beentesting her every month at her apt. Does anyone know the exact procedure ? Is her doc testing her every time?  Will she have to worry about losing medicaid if she's been positive more thab once before baby comes? Idk what to tell her cause im not in that situation and medicaid tells u nothing except they tested for everything at the beginning of pregnancy. Thanks no judgement please.

It all depends on the doctor, not if  you have Medicaid . Because I have Medicaid in Florida

Im currently in orlando fl. And before i found out abt my lite miracle i used to smoke everyday. Obviously once i found  out i quit. When i went to my ob , they took a urine sample and of course i was still dirty and she brought that up to me. Im 33wks and i havent had a problem since because i stayed clean. But im pretty sure they test your urine at every appointment..i also have medicaid.
