    I feel there is something needs to be done about needing more doctors who would accept Medicaid patients. I have custody of my grandson who has ADHD. Before I retired from my work, my health insurance from work covered him. Now I am retired and on Medicare which only for retired seniors. My grandson have to be put on Medicaid. I have hard time find a doctor who would take Medicaid or they just don't take new patients. I am concerning about how I can have his ADHD medication fill without a doctor to write a prescription. He will be running out of his medication by end of this month. It's very frustrated for me.

    Have you looked into the Children's Health Insurance Program? It is a State/Federal program that your grandson may be eligible for.

    RE: MEDICAID CREDENTIALING/RE-CREDENTIALING in PENNSYLVANIA

    Are there any forum participants who know the most direct way to get up-to-date information on provider Medicaid numbers ?

    There have been changes in the credentialing process and it's very hard to get straight information on credentialing/ re-credentialing in Pennsylvania

    Specifically, it's difficult to reach a live operator knowledgeable about Medicaid credentialing/re-credentialing here in Pennsylvania.

    Thank You !
