Why do I have to get poor medical care simply because i recieve medicaid for insurance?

But the sad truth is, our state political system (which controls the funding for medicaid) devalues medicaid and threatens to cut services every year. Treatments aren't covered, wait times are increased, and both doctors and patients become very frustrated. ...Read more

Getting my period every 2 weeks for a 5 months? How urgent is it to see a dr. Can i risk waiting? Cant afford insurance and don't qualify for medicaid

Vaginal bleeding: Perhaps you have vaginal bleeding (vb) that is not related to your cycle. Go to a gynecologist (g) and have an ultrasound done of your uterus to see if your bleeding is coming from a bleeding fibroid. Have the g go over your hormonal levels and ask for the g's comments. Excessive vb for 5 months is clearly not normal and it needs to be evaluated before you become severely anemic. Good luck. ...Read more

Hello, may i ask how much it would cost to fix a broken nose if you have medicaid and military insurance? The doctors never finished fixing it.

Hello, may i ask how much it would cost to fix a broken nose if you have medicaid and military insurance? The doctors never finished fixing it.

Insurance question: The answer is it depends. Procedures like getting your nose fixed can range from a closed reduction (usually done close to the time of the injury) to a functional nasal reconstruction. Depending on the timing of the injury, the functional problems you are having (like breathing difficulty) and the work that needs to be done to correct, it could all be covered. Your doctors' office can help. ...Read more
