    How accessible is it to locate a general physician that accepts a Medicaid managed care carrier (i.e. Americhoice) in NYC? Are the physicians on their network high quality?

    I understand that Medicaid managed care carriers pay the physicians less than private insurance carriers. Does anyone know how great the differential in pay between Medicaid and private insurance is for a doctor? And what incentive would a frum doctor have to accept Medicaid?


    Not a very fair question. You would need to go on the internet for your plan and look up a doctor. Not every doctor accepts every insurance to begin with. Not every doctor accepts every medicaid plan. Insurance is complicated and it is hard for the doctor’s office to deal with ALL plans even when they pay, some are just difficult to work with.
