Troubles With Medicaid

RECEIVED Mon., Sept. 11, 2006

Dear Editor,
    Having recently moved to Austin, I have had a hell of a time trying to find a doctor who accepts Medicaid. I called Seton hospital for a list, and there are two doctors on it who still accept it. Then I get a letter from Medicaid saying I will have to join the "star program" and how great it is. Unlimited R/X, and transplants are even covered. I challenge you to find out how many transplants they have paid for. Every single doctor I called from their list of providers will not accept their coverage - there are two separate programs, I called doctors from both - and all I'm looking for is a G.P.
