County Health Departments in Florida
Click HERE for general information about the Title X (Ten) program (which helps low-income men pay for vasectomy services) and a listing of the Florida counties wherein vasectomy services are offered by Drs. Doug Stein and other vasectomy providers.
We have learned that, when it comes to procuring vasectomy services, Medicaid can be
more of a hindrance than a benefit. Medicaid has a reputation of paying so slowly that few doctors wish to participate. Certain county health departments participate, but they may require referral authorizations from the Medicaid primary care physicians, and getting a referral authorization may be discouragingly slow.
Dr. Stein is no longer a Medicaid provider of
vasectomy services because the reimbursement is low
($143) and the paperwork unbearable. (Three claims were recently denied
because we used abbreviations: Dr. Stein's middle initial "G." and "M.D.",
rather than "George" and "Medical Doctor".) However, some county
health departments will offer Title 10 financial assistance (see below) to
men with Medicaid if there are no local providers of vasectomy
services under the Medicaid program.
Medicaid tries to shift all Medicaid patients to Medicaid HMO's, sometimes without the Medicaid recipient even being aware of the shift. Dr. Stein is not a contracted provider with any Medicaid HMOs, as some Medicaid HMO administrators have done exceptionally well financially, and we do not want that financial success to be at our expense.
