Medicaid is such a tricky payer. They request authorization for so many services and many of those take two to three business days for them to approve, if they choose to approve those services. I cannot tell you the number of people who cannot have certain scans/imaging services because Medicaid will not approve the service prior to scheduling. It’s mind-boggling and the patients end up going without since their insurance will not cover the service.
