Everything is free with Medicaid in my state, but the problem is you have to get prior authorizations put through by doctors in the network and the doctors in the Medicaid network are not trained to treat ME/CFS. Any prior authorization put through by an ME/CFS specialist out of network (and all of the ME specialists I know of are out of network) will be denied. This is at least according to Medicaid rules. Has anyone tried it and had it go through? I have considered trying to get a part-time job and getting insurance through that job or through the marketplace but I am not confident that even if I had BCBS or another "real" insurance that I would be able to get treatments like IVIG or Valcyte covered. I may just be paying for insurance and still paying for the medications while, in the current situation, I am at least not paying for insurance. Open enrollment is coming up. Is anyone in the community able to get treatment for ME through Medicaid? If so, what treatment were you able to get? Thanks everyone. I really appreciate any tips or advice you have.
