How do I let my doctor know that I have Medicaid?

When you are approved for Medicaid, you will receive a Medicaid ID card yearly. You must take your current card with you each time you go to the doctor, hospital, pharmacy, or any other medical provider. It is very important to keep up with your Medicaid card! It works just like a health insurance card. If you do not show your card to the medical provider you may become responsible for paying the full cost of the medical bill or prescription.
