Im hopeful the answer is or not! Then my new baby cousin will have to stay intact!
Thought I had medicade 17 years ago and it paid for my son. Wish it hadnt.
Or is this one of those things that they only do "if medically necesary" but the docs manage to make them all necesary? Like, I know that medicade now covers u/s but 17 years ago you got one only if "medically necesary" but a friend tipped me off to just ask the doc to say my baby size didnt match dates, he did and viola! A "medically neceary" u/s. So, is this one of those things they just fudge and get around?
It depends on what state you're in. Unfortunately, they've only managed to get it dropped in 16 states so far. Those are: Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. One of the sad things about that is that I've heard stories of parents, who otherwise didn't have two cents to rub together, scrape up the dough to pay for it.
Oh and this is my post. I hope it helps you or rather your cousin.
ETA: Yes sometimes there is some medical fraud.
My friend just had a baby boy (we're in Louisiana) and Medicaid did NOT pay for his circ.
However, when DS (who is intact) was about 15mo, he got a rash (yes a RASH) and his pedi told us that if his rash didn't go away, that she would refer us to a pedi urologist for a circ and medicaid would cover it. : I told her to keep her d*mn referral because no one was getting near my son's penis with a scalpel.
