- Did you know that Medicaid doesn’t cover health care costs for adults who may earn income above Medicaid coverage limits, yet below the poverty level?
- Did you know that it can take up to 30 days for Medicaid to approve coverage of doctor-prescribed mobility equipment. Waiting for approval delays recovery, increases risk of falls and new injuries, and may require patients to remain in the hospital longer?
- Did you know Medicaid provides wheelchairs with the expectation that it will last five years? If it wears out or is lost, the recipient is on their own.
