So, yesterday was my Medicaid appointment...we didn't qualify. We make $230 too much :-/ However, the Medicaid lady heavily emphasized I should call this other OB office (she couldn't outright recommend, since she would get fired). I called that OB office and they sound AMAZING. They are TOTALLY willing to work with us. They said as long as we pay a little bit toward our bill every month, we're good.

I cancelled my appointment that's supposed to be for Thursday at this other place, and I now have an appointment on the 18th. They said they'll probably do an ultrasound, since they like to do that on all new patients. I'll be almost 16 weeks by then, so that'll be fun to be able to see the baby again.

Right now I'm breathing a huge sigh of relief and now I don't have to worry about coming up with $500/month to pay the doctor.

This week is off to a good start.

I don't understand. I thought all pregnancies are covered under Medicaid if you don't have private insurance. Or is it state by state?

I have private insurance. I was trying to qualify for it to be a secondary insurance. But I guess We could make like $2900/month and we were making $3100/month. If I quit my job, we could qualify...but I'm not ready to quit my job yet. The Medicaid lady was 1) surprised we didn't qualify and 2) REALLY sorry we didn't qualify. She said I could stop working and reapply. But I would rather just work more and not worry about it.

Nope not all pregnancies are covered. I was denied Medicaid for this pregnancy as well. And I dont have another insurance carrier.

Thats fantastic news. Make sure to ask them about cash patients vs insurance patients just to see if you can get things on a sliding scale!
