Both my kids are on medicaid/CHIP and have a doctor listed on their insurance cards I found no longer does clinical visits as she has moved her practice to the hospital nearby. My daughter needs to see a doctor asap however to get a evulation for the end of the school year. Can I call and make an appointment with another doctor (that accepts medicaid/CHIP of course)? Will they accept her a new patient? And will her insurance still pay for it even if its the doctor not listed in their records? I will call to change the doctor, it would just take 2 weeks for the systems to be updated and I really cannot wait that long.Answer Question

You really NEED to call your insurance company and ask them this. No one here knows what the specifics of YOUR plan is.
