 Message: 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.
