Anyone have pregnancy medicaid?

Got approved on Friday and I'm in their system. I tried to make an appt with a new ob today and they say I'm nor in the system at the doctor office. I was seeing if anyone had experience with how long a doctor can take to get the info.

I was. I did not have that happen, but from my understanding, they can see you anyway and bill DSHS when the paperwork comes through. If they are giving you a hassle about it call DSHS and let them know.

Yes, you are going to have to call DSHS. Alot of the time their systems mess up.

They cover you (here at least) 30 day prior to when you applied. However, I had to wait until they sent me a letter stating I was approved, before any doctor would see me. Then update them once I got my card.

It's just so strange. I went by the medicaid office today and even got my temporary card with my number on it. When I called the ob they kept saying the number is not coming up in their system. Then I called the medicaid office back and all they could say was it should be in their system. The receptionist at the ob said maybe wait till Sept. 1 I told her I am pregnant with twins and can't wait that long. Ugh, so annoying.

It doesn't matter if you are in their system yet or not. They should still see you and then if they really wanted they could bill you. Then talk to DHS after about them paying it. Did you ask if they would do that or accept your approval letter or card when you go in. I think that's ridiculous they won't even let you make an appointment.

Here it takes 24hrs to show up in the system for like pharmacy and stuff. So try tomorrow after it has been 24 hrs.

yes, sucks to their system. It probably varies by state, but they will back date your coverage even if you need it. There was a fun scanner malfunction in June (I was due July) that caused our case to lapse and no one at the Dr seemed to care. Which was great, because I was stressing! When they finally sorted my case out they just back dated the coverage.

I agree about it being ridiculous. I asked if they would accept my approval letter or temporary card. Receptionist said no I had to come up in their system. I am giving it s day or two then moving on to another doctor to try. I just really wanted this one.

Oh another thing, did they say your start date on the letter? I know with mine I was covered before the start date but when I went to the pharmacy to get meds they said I wasn't covered for like another day or two according to their system.
