 Message: Interesting !  In some states  one cannot see Medicaid patients and have them pay cash- illegal  I am told( is that true? Never saw it in print I admit)
 so,  it would be obvious they would try to get their prescriptions paid for who wouldn't   but the prescription coverage is connected to who wrote for it?? I am not helping you I am sorry  Let us  know
The system  gets  more bizarre daily   I confess I am at my wits end

Subject: When your out-of-pocket patient uses Medicaid to pay for prescriptions

Hello all,
How do you address the issue where an out-of-pocket patient in a cash-only practice seeks to pay for prescriptions with Medicaid?  Today, I was called by the pharmacist who informed me that Medicaid will not pay for my patient's prescription because I am not enrolled with Medicaid. Has anyone ever experienced this situation?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.
