Medicaid and finding an NYC paediatrician, ob/gyn (or better yet midwife?) and dentists...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I'm really frustrated. I have medicaid. The name of the insurance through medicaid is United Healthcare Community Plan for Families. I called the insurance to ask for places here that take it, and they gave me a list. Called the whole list and none of them take it anymore. Called the insurance again and they told me to not mention that it was medicaid, just to say community plan for families. So I called everyone back, still no one took it. Called insurance again... they said, oh, sorry the system is out of date. Here's the booklet of all the doctors who have taken it or take it now. But it's old. so... just go through the 700 pages and call each one until one takes it."

 

Does anyone on here use medicaid and can refer some doctors? I need a paediatrician for my 6 mon old son, a doctor for myself, an oral surgeon, and a dentist. I live on the UWS in the 80s, but now I'm pretty willing to travel anywhere in manhattan to just find a place!

 

Thanks in advance. (:
