Article

I have been treating a patient for some time. The patient just became eligible for, and is receiving, Medicaid. I don't accept Medicaid, and the patient is willing to pay out of pocket to keep seeing me. Is that legal?

Question: I have been treating a patient for some time. The patient just became eligible for, and is receiving, Medicaid. I don't accept Medicaid, and the patient is willing to pay out of pocket to keep seeing me. Is that legal?

Answer: Certainly. As long as the patient is willing to pay for your services herself, she is free to keep seeing you.
