I am having problems keeping a primary care doctor assigned & have to have a Medicaid referral for any counseling for my child. I was wondering if any others have experienced this problem

I have nerver had a problem with ARKIDS or Medicaid, prehaps that is because my husband and I both waited until we finished college before getting married. We also waited until we were married before we had children. It seems that a two parent home as many advantages.

Because we waited, we both have good jobs that allow us to provide for our family. While we are not rich we are able to pay our own way and do not rely on government assistance.

You might want to try this option.

I know that this sounds like a ratical idea, but it does work.

You do realize that there are many working parents that are on Medicaid because the government and medical insurance people are all pretty much screwed up, right? And not only by making that statement do you seem like a jackass, it also made yourself seem ignorant. You do not know this person's situation, nor do I, but before you go and judge and label them a lazy, unwed, free-loading, government living low-life, I suggest you take a look at yourself and realize that you are not perfect either. No matter who you are. I know plenty of hard-working individuals who are married who just cannot afford health insurance, and that's even if their jobs have decent coverages, and this is the only way they can get help. With you yourself being a parent, you should know how terribly expensive it can be, and that's just if the child is healthy. Who are you to put down someone who is just trying to do good for their child, or children. And as far as waiting, I also have a couple of friends who conceived while on birth control. Accidents happen. Good for you that you and your husband had it all figured out and worked out the way you planned. However, things rarely go as planned. You are not one to judge. There is only one true judge, and I really doubt that you are Him.

You are so right. I know ALOT of working parents that are able to get insurance through their workplace. But the premium's are so high.
Good Reply

I have a special needs child who is on our family medical plan as well as Arkids. Arkids is his secondary ins. Not all people who have ARkids are non-working citizens - or low income for that matter.

Quit your liberal whining and get a better job. Just another sad excuse for parents not doing their job to provide for their childern. Do without a second car, do without the internet, get a second job. Or just wait long enough and Obama and Opera may give it to you.

My dear snobby, clueless, ignorant "working parents" Here is an idea for you to try before you come back on here trying to belittle a person who is making sure their child has medical coverage. Please feel free to choose from the following
A. Come down of your "make believe" pedestal
B. Discontinue using Preparation H as your face wash (it really makes you look like a drawn up frigid @ss)
C. STAY OFF OF HERE IF YOU CAN'T SAY ANYTHING NICE TO SOMEONE WHO IS TAKING CARE OF THEIR CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!
Just because some one is receiving "government funded" insurance doesn't make them lazy or non working. My husband and I waited till we got married to have kids, both had good jobs, and college educated, he was killed in a car accident and It was emotionally & financially difficult for my children and I, with out the help of "government assistance" my children and I would be homeless. We are doing good now, but still have Arkids insurance. I told you this small story about myself and my life hoping maybe you find some compassion in your heart for people who struggle and need help. Be kind to everyone you speak (or type) to you never know what kind of struggle they are facing!!!!!!
OOPS one more thing you need to do, if you wanna sound so EDUCATED and PERFECT learn to use your SPELL CHECKER sweetie!!!!!!!!!!

In case you are not aware of it sometimes parents seperate and women are left with children and a father that does not take care of them or perhaps the father died and even though he worked had no insurance so the mother is left trying to make ends meet. I also know of people who graduated from college that have no job in this struggling economy so, just because you think your life is perfect, you may be in the same boat someday. ARKIDS is to be sure that the children have medical benefits even if the parents do not. Do not be so quick to judge. Maybe you should take your judgemental self to Church Sunday and ask the good Lord to help you be a little more sensitive to the needs of the less fortunate!

hmmm... so when you went to college ~ did you pay for that on your own or did you receive scholarship... just wondering if the "government" or any other individual/business has ever provided assistance to you and your lovely husband?

Wow, I put this on here last night looking for some info but definately not expecting this hate sent back. So here goes, first of all be careful sometimes you might be deceived. I put it on here because I work in this field and know this a problem with the state. I am in the process of trying to help a child, of TWO WORKING PARENTS both with college educations, get a doctor assigned. These parents evidently couldn't or didn't have children of their own but chose to adopt this child with some severe handicaps and is confined to a wheelchair. Since you are so well to do, and a know it all I'm sure you are aware that if you adopt a child in this state, regardless of you're income, that child is on Medicaid/Arkids until at least 18 & in some cases 20. This child will be on it forever because of physical handicaps. The family has had trouble since getting her here trying to find a local primary care with Medicaid openings. We got them set in Jonesboro this morning though and I know from the care and concern you are showing, you are glad that this kid can continue to go to Arkansas Children's Hospital and now take a Medicaid referral with her to help pay for her services. By the way, she has primary and secondary commercial insurance through her adoptive mother and fathers employers. I'm so proud to see that the overwhelming majority didn't have the HATE that you projected. Until today I have felt so sorry for this family. The amount of love these parents have for this little girl though is wonderful. Today I actually feel sorry for you. You are full of hate and negativity. God be with you.

It is the 99.999% that are deadbeats that makes the rest of us look bad. I knew when I started having children that if I didn't prepare for contingencies that it didn't matter, that those that did would take care of it for me. I had a bunch of idiot friends that choose not to party and they went on to get good jobs, so why should I contribute when they are doing so good. I don't prejudge, if you work hard for something, I should be allowed a good portion of it.

Why did you say counseling? Or why didn't you say this to begin with? Sometimes I think people get on here and do this because they know they will stir the pot. I think people that stir the pot have kind of a hate thing going on themselves. I would think if you really wanted to help these people you would have called family services or some other social department instead of topix. I think you were hoping someone would get on here so you could tell them how hateful and negative they are and how wonderful you are. IMO
