A receptionist working at a private office was asked to schedule appointments where Saturdays will be only for Private Insurance Patients. Medicaid Patients will be only seen on certain time slots. No same-day appointments for Medicaid Patients. Always ask what kind of insurance the patient have before setting an appointment.

Being on medicare myself, not medicaid, the first thing you have to ask any doctor is do you take medicare. Medicare is not the great government insurance everybody tells you it is. You have to also buy private insurance to pay for what medicare does not pay.

A medical practice is a business, not a charity. Their staff doesn't work for free, their equipment isn't provided to the office free of charge, the utilities don't pay for themselves. Mancos is right on about this and lovin has a good point too. I have private ins. and I have to make sure that my Dr. takes my ins., or I am liable for the bill if I choose to go somewhere that doesn't accept my plan.
