YAY, WOW I can't believe it. If I am reading all the papers correctly then I have medicaid. This is what I have been trying so hard to get! So now that I have it, I just got the letter today, what do I do. Or rather, does anyone know the best doctor in this area to see who supports surgery? Do you know what the process is for being approved for surgery with Medicaid? I am so excited to maybe, hopefully, finally having a way to get this surgery. I am so ready to begin doing whatever I have to do to get it. Thanks for all you help and support. I am so happy I have this board to come to! Candy

WOW WOW WOW WOW I am so very happy for you Candy. The only doctor I could find in Georgia was Dr Duncan's office. Believe me I searched long and hard and even had Amy Williams looking for me too. Call me if you need any details. His office has a seminar coming up on the 14th I believe. That is the first step. Again congratulations.

I know, WOW is right, I can't hardly belive it! I am planning on going saturday to the seminar thanks for telling me about that. Where do you suggest I go to get the clearences that I need to get? Do I have to get a PCP to set those up for me? and if I do, who is the best that supports this surgery? My brain is trying to figure so much out all at once. So how are you feeling???

Dr. Ducans office was the best for me I attended a simenar on December 14th 06 got my packet and made all the appoints for my clearences that monday. Make sure you get all your medical clerences!!! Because Tracey and Lolitta wont submitt to the insurence untill thay have every thing. Thats so you dont get denided. I have Peachstate and was approved within 48hr after thay got my papers. Please attend the simenar ASAP! to get started you have to get the packet before so you can begain your journey. Its a long process good luck mine started in November 2006 and I got my surgery date April 10th its (May 7th ) Be very agressive Good Luck Please contact me if I can help you in any way. JULIA

Candy, In my opinion you can not go wrong with Dr Duncans office. My surgery was done by Dr Hodson and the help and support I recieved was nothing short of the best.
