  • Call your case worker if you have access to a phone most likely they would know.

  • What would be the purpose of seeing different psychiatrists in one month?

    Medicaid covers 20 psychiatriac visits per calendar year. After 20 visits, you're not covered until the next year. Psychiatrists will schedule client visits based on the diagnosis and treatment plan.

  • i guess i would think that normally you would want to see the same DRmore than once... so i'm not sure what your question is? i have regular insurance and i know mine won't pay for me to see multiple dr's for no good reason.
