I had medicaid with my dd and I had to basically call around to find a dr. that would accept Medicaid. I would suggest opening up your phone book and find midwives and give them a call to see if they accept Medicaid. I don't know anything about NY, but this is just what I would do.

Have you googled? There are a lot of midwife resource homepages that you can search for midwives in your area. You might be able to find one that way. I found mine by googling AND by checking my insurance in-network database. But you already said that was a no go (the database thing)....

Here is a site I found on doing a quick search "New York Midwives" is what I typed in

Home | New York Homebirth Midwives

I know here you have to choose a medicaid "provider" or insurance company. Through THAT website I can search for providers. I'm not sure how it works in NY, but there should be a way to search, maybe call the office and ask?

maybe try contacting the ones you have found and see if they have a referral to one closer? Midwives usually work together as a team and will refer each other when they cannot provide the services to you....worth a shot and sicne you've already found some just not the right one....it'd be *my* next shot
