<p>My husband started a new job and we won't have private insurance until March 1st so DS is on Medicaid until then and his current doctor does not accept Medicaid.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Are there any doctors in the Port St Lucie, Stuart, Palm City or Fort Pierce areas that takes Medicaid and is selective/delayed vax friendly?</p>

<p>I was told that medicaid in GA will drop you if you do not vax...at least that is what my ped told me.  My kids have medicaid and I get calls starting the day after their birthday every year that I need to sched a well baby checkup (grrr) and the dr and nurses told me medicaid will cancel your coverage if you dont vax....so i would check into that.</p>

<p>It was probably all scare tactics, but still</p>

<p>I've have heard of Dr. Punger in Fort Pierce mentioned here several times, but I, personally, have not met her. Hope that helps.</p>

<p>Dr. Punger is my personal Dr and LO's Pedi but she doesn't accept Medicaid beyond pregnancy and newborn and being a SAHM I can't afford to pay out of pocket to see her so I need to find another Dr until we can get insurance again.</p>

<p>In case somebody is searching the boards for the same information and come across this thread, Little People Pediatrics in Port St Lucie was the place that I found.</p>
