Each provider is allowed to decide whether they will accept Medicare and whether they will accept Medicaid. In my husband's case there were absolutely no changes in his care providers; all of his doctors accepted both Medicare and Medicaid. Apparently you are not so lucky. This is not a Medicaid rule. It is the choice of the doctors and clinics.
