I need to know of any doctors in Tampa Florida that take Medicaid for pain management or at least be flexible with the initial office visit because I am on S.S.I. and medicaid togther? I am currently going to methadone maintanace every day but the dose is so small it does me no good only 50mgm a day has to last 24 hours plus I am in a wheelchair and catch two buses to get to the doseing site. I am not one to complain but I am in seriouse pain all the time, in chair or not. I wish there was some one that would work with me on partial payment through medicaid and out of pocket. I am new to all this and I need help you guys out there that know where to go!
Hillsborogh county ? floridashealth.com has a consumer search you can try
If I am not mistaken, Medicaid needs a referral. I would call Medicaid office and see 1) who they have in that specialisty 2) see if there is a clinic near you or have your PCP call and refer
