You live in Tx??? I have medicaid superior. Don't know if that makes a difference.

Not true both my sons were circumsized in 2010 and 2012



Quoting model1000mom:

Normally no. It will not pay for infant circumcision as that is not a necessary medical procedure. It will not pay for any circumcision done for cosmetic reasons.

However, Medicaid will cover circumcision when it is medically necessary, for example when an adult male has phimosis, a chronic constriction of the foreskin that prevents normal functioning of the penis.

Texas Joins 14 Other States in Dropping Circumcision from Medicaid
Funding

The second largest state in the union has joined California, Oregon,
Washington, Florida and other states in saying "no" to circumcision.

In a move that will save taxpayers millions of dollars, Texas
stopped paying for CPT code 54150 circumcisions in 2006.

They covered my son's in 1998 and again in 2002 but I am in Indiana.  I am so glad we got our boys circed. It has made life so much easier.

North Carolina does not when they are in the hospital but a lot of peds will do it in their office at the first check up. I used to work at social services as a Medicaid income maintenance worker. There should be a number on your card that you can call and ask. Or call the pediatrician's office that you intend to use.

That was unnecessary. Some employers don't/won't/can't provide health insurance and some people can't afford private insurance. I had a good job when I was pregnant with my first but they didn't provide maternity insurance and the premiums for private insurance was more than I could afford so the only other choice I had was Medicaid. Stop being so judgemental.

Yes. It will also cover getting your tubes tied, Ensure (spelling), and even a IUD after you have the baby. If none of those are options, you can still get a prescription for a years worth of birth control at your 6 week postpartum appointment.

HAHA damn you have some serious issues!! Pathetic. Yeah bitch, it IS creepy of you to be so concerned with what other mothers choose to do with THEIR children. If you can't simply answer the question (which was obviously too difficult for you) don't bother posting anything at all. ESP stuff about mutilation. You're just making yourself look psychotic, ANON.
