 Cannot find a single OBGYN that excepts it..Like really..I have been waiting a month and a half and now this..I did find one but they are limited and I have to call the first of July which god I can wait another week and then they will be excepting more patients..If they dont go over by the time I call..The only other option I have is the health dep. and I really dont want to experience that again..i was young and didnt care where I went and my delivery was horrible..So I am hoping I find one before I have to take that option..

Medicaid should send you a book with a list of all in your state that accepts your insurance.

I had that same problem but at least in my town they have a moms clinic specifically for pregnant women. Unfortunately the government only pays a fraction of what they charge so a lot of doctors no longer take Medicaid.

They should send you a list of providers. I go to the ob in the next town. The 1 in my town closed the ob department but even before they did that I always have went to the next town for everything. I don't trust that hospital. I'm sure it will close soon.

that's odd.  medicare is for the elderly and those with disabilities.  not really the target crowd for the baby makin.
