How to Proceed With Medicaid

1. Your primary care provider (PCP) writes a letter of medical necessity and requests a referral to a surgeon.

2. If approved, Medicaid will send the referral along to the surgeon, and the surgeon’s office will contact you about your consultation date.

3. The surgeon will request a medical release from your PCP, a letter of recommendation from a therapist, and prior authorization from Medicaid for surgery. (Depending on your age and medical history, the surgeon may also order lab tests, a chest X-ray and a mammogram.)
