Wouldn't Medicaid provide a list of their approved doctors? you can get a list of the doctors in the area from their website and call them.

I tried searching for a list and I even called DSS but the recording said they had a high volume of calls to call back later or tomorrow.

Seriously?? Pregnant people arent allowed to get laid off? What alternative would make you happy?

OP: I would start with Eastover OB. They have several offices in Charlotte, and if they are not currently accepting Medicaid, they should be able to refer you to a practice that is.

- Eastover OB/GYN

Found this article, thought it might be helpful.

What do the Medicaid Benefits for pregnant women include?

Similar to other health care assistance programs, Medicaid does not pay monetary benefits directly to covered participants. Certain health care providers and health care facilities have a contract with Medicaid to treat those who are covered by Medicaid insurance. When receiving Medicaid benefits, you should be given a list of medical providers who accept Medicaid, or given a website to look for a provider in your area. As long as you receive care from a Medicaid provider, your health care costs will be submitted through Medicaid and will be covered. (In accordance with certain Medicaid regulations and guidelines.)

Pregnant women are covered for all care related to the pregnancy, delivery and any complications that may occur during pregnancy and up to 60 days postpartum.

Additionally, pregnant women also may qualify for care that was received for their pregnancy before they applied and received Medicaid. Some states call this “Presumptive Eligibility” and it was put in place so that all women would start necessary prenatal care as early in pregnancy as possible. Talk with your local office to find out if you qualify for presumptive eligibility.

Pregnant women are usually given priority in determining Medicaid eligibility. Most offices try to qualify a pregnant woman within about 2-4 weeks. If you need medical treatment before then, talk with your local office about a temporary card.

Select doctors that meet your criteria then give their offices a call and inquire if they accept Medicaid.

Best wishes to you -

Here's a link for a great OBGYN:
Arboretum Obstetrics & Gynecology

I don't know if they accept medicaid, check their list out. It does not hurt to call any office directly to inquire.

Good luck!

If you were honestly laid off from your job, then you should be eligible for COBRA benefits. Being laid off from a job doesn't automatically qualify you for Medicaid. And if you have an emergency situation, as though you are making it sound, then you can go to any emergency room, and they can't turn you down.
