That's a good idea but I don't know how or where to start for that, PM TCA2008 perhaps she knows.

What about MI? I see it's listed as "discussing" on the map in the first post. How do I find out who's discussing it and how I can share my opinion with them?

Actually, as far as the 'discussing' is concerned the map is out of date. There should only really be those that do and don't at this point. Though we hope to get some 'discussing' soon. MI has a very active NOCIRC group and if you want I'll PM you the information for that state, as much as I have anyway.

Ooh, I'm in MI and I want in! We're BROKE. This is the last thing the state should pay for.

How 'bout a bumper sticker: "If you want to mutilate your child, at least pay for it out of pocket."

Just a reminder folks, you can summarize the responses you get, but please don't repost the whole email. That is a violation of our copyright rules. Thanks!

Medicaid project

I'm a dad and an attorney in KY and have been working on the Medicaid project here for years, so far with no success but still trying. Happy to share what I've learned.

Yes, I did get a reply, wrote back, and got a second. The Medicaid director, while seemingly sympathetic to our cause, is not incline to act at this point. Two points he made in the first letter were that it should be up to the parents and the possibility of HIV reduction. Though he noted that the rates had come down in recent years. I corrected some of what he mentioned regarding purported benefits and asked for information about the rates. He replied with 5 years worth of data and the numbers had come down. In 2008 only about 55% of Medicaid babies born were circumcised with Medicaid funds. Which by my figuring is a bit under 40%.

I am going to try and continue, I just last week got the second letter. How did everyone else do? Any responses?
post #59 of 66
thank you everyone for devoting your time to this great cause! I am in NC where Medicaid no longer funds circumcision and looking forward to the day when it is this way across the whole country.
