I was on Medicaid when Gabriel was born. It didn't cover circumcision, so we paid for it out of pocket. It was $300.00 and done a week after birth at our pediatrician's office. If you have traditional insurance when you give birth, you can do it while you are still in the hospital but if you qualify for Medicaid ABSOLUTELY double check to make sure it is covered, otherwise you are going to need to pay for it out of pocket and it might be less to have the pediatrician do it at your first appointment.

As far as the healing, he didn't even flinch while it was being done. Not a peep or cry. I, on the other hand, nearly frickin' fainted and had to leave the room and DH stayed with him while the doctor finished it. We just kept it covered with Vaseline and some gauze, I think and it healed fairly quickly. (Like a week, I think)
