Baby should be covered under your medicaid card for 30 days. In that time frame, you need to call and report the birth and send in the info they need to get baby some insurance coverage. As for the pediatrician, they will have an on-call doc come look after baby in the hospital, or a doc of your choice.
I didn't pick an actual pediatrician for my kids, but rather a family doctor. That way my kids will grow up having the same doctor they can trust. Basically, we picked the doctor that we felt cared more about his patients than he did money. We made sure he agreed that medical decisions are actually ours to make overall, and that he'd make sure to explain everything in a manner that ensures we can make an informed choice.
