So far so good with Medicaid

Jul 24, 2017 3:23 PM

I have a new primary doctor and she is great, she took her time and said we have a lot to do because I have not been there since 2015 or since I was diagnosed with Sjögren's syndrome. She put in referrals for the rheumatologist, gastroenterologist, and the nephrologist so far. She did give me a prescription for Percocet 5/325 but the only thing with that is that one every 12hrs does not touch my pain. I did request to a referral to pain management and she said the script is just to hold me till I do see some of the specialists. One great thing that happen was my mom asked the pharmacy can they bill my Medicaid for all the prescription dated back to Aug 2016 because that's how far back my Medicaid goes. And the next day the had a check for me for $477. My mom thought all of it was hers but I know at least 5 or 6 times I paid for my medicine but I didn't make a fuss about it I told her Happy Birthday because her birthday is this Wednesday. So that's all for now, I'm hoping I get a good pain management doctor. Been looking online for some but everybody has mixed reviews. And I hope all the specialists I have to see are good too. I still need to see an orthopedic doctor too.

Major Coolies! Whomever you see if the first thing they say to you "I don't prescribe narcotics" politely finish the interview and never go back...
If they received a negative review is there a back up of reason for the negative review? Or even positive review..anyway...good luck and congrats! All my best
