Medicaid. His office said that Medicaid took seven months to pay their bills and since it was a small amount anyway, they quit taking Medicaid patients. I am in more pain that I have ever been. I think my "vacation" did me in. I remember when I first had to go on Medicaid and I apologized that they paid so little. He said that it didn't matter because when people are in pain they need help. I think that was the hardest part to take - he seemed so sincere. I know it is a business. Now, I have to call all over creation to see if any others take Medicaid. There are no orthopedic drs. in my county that take it. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful to have the help but when the government keeps these workers on who don't do their jobs, we all suffer.
