This morning we went into the pharmacy to get test strips and pen needles for Jen. My kids are on Medicaid....and have always been (so that means, in Montana, and in Florida, and now here). My husband had to go in to get the test strips and needles, because I had to leave the house to take my youngest to Speech therapy, before the pharmacy opened. When I got home, I found he'd had to pay copay (which, Medicaid isn't supposed to have a copay!). So I went in to the pharmacy to ask about that. They told me that Medicaid in Mississippi does not cover needles of any kind!!! And for test strips, Medicaid won't cover them, unless the doctor calls in to Medicaid (or somehow notifies Medicaid) that this patient needs these test strips! I'm like, What?!!! I said, "That is a very bad law. Who do I contact about trying to get that changed???" Is there anyone else on these forums who is in Mississippi, and their child is on Medicaid? Are there other states that are like this? Montana and Florida are not....at least they weren't when we lived there! I mean, really, what is the point of taking insulin if you cannot administer it? How else can you administer insulin without needles?
