My doctor clearly stated that medicaid does not cover it and even if I was going to get it done, I had to wait a few days as they only had one doctor in the hospital that did them and he was on vacation. This was in Fl in '05.
ETA: I was told that we had to pay for it up front if we wanted it. I thank God that we are cheapstakes and chose to keep the money in our pockets instead of chopping off his bits.
I just never did it cause we don't do it in out family. and I found it going against maternal instincts of protecting my baby.
