We have Medicaid, do not vax, and after 6 months only see our doctor annually or as needed. We haven't had a bit of trouble.
I assume you got a list of doctors who accept Medicaid - get it out and look for family practices. Then call them and ask their vaccination policies and how often the expect to see your child. The state has way too much to do to keep track of you - they will only be alerted if someone reports you, and someone will only report you if they think no vaxes and a check up a year are harmful to your child. So obviously you want a doctor who doesn't think that way.
When we were looking I met with the first doc on our list. First he asked what was wrong with my son, why did I bring him in? That was a good sign for me, because it told me he was someone who wanted to see ill/injured people, not healthy ones. He wasn't going to think I was neglecting my kids just because he only saw them once a year. Later, when we were leaving he said "Oh yes, if you want any vaccinations please let us know before the appointment because I don't keep any in the office". Bingo!
I'm thinking more on this, and I've heard these same stories, but does anyone actually know of a real CPS case over vax status alone (with no other neglect or abuse issues, I mean)? I just think maybe this is one of those myths designed to scare people into either vaxing or not using Medicaid.
