Once your child who is on Medicaid turns 4 years old and is not potty trained yet, you can qualify for free diapers! I was very excited to hear about this one.
Your child must have a potty training plan established and be 4 years old. After that, ask for a written prescription for diapers from your child's pediatrician. Take that prescription to Walgreens, Norco, etc and they will then take you through the process to help get you set up. You qualify to receive diapers monthly and if you go through Norco (other places may do this too) they will deliver them to your home! Pretty sweet. In order to have them delivered you have to call them every month to schedule delivery time.
There you go! Also you can instead have pull-ups rather than diapers. We've opted for the diapers but if your child is close to being potty-trained then pull-ups could be the way to go.
If you have private insurance in addition to Medicaid (Katie Beckett) then you can qualify for health insurance reimbursements.
Once a client who has private health insurance has established Medicaid coverage they can be considered for the Health Insurance Premium Payment (HIPP) Program. The HIPP Program is a Medicaid program for Medicaid clients whose coverage meets the cost effectiveness criteria.
If a case is found cost effective, the HIPP Program may pay to a private insurance carrier, or reimburse to a policy holder, some or all of the insurance premiums paid for Medicaid clients. HIPP cases will usually remain open until: Medicaid eligibility ends, or the Medicaid client is no longer on the insurance policy, or the case is no longer considered cost effective.

What is the Access Pass?
It is a lifetime pass - available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States that have been medically determined to have a permanent disability -- that provides access to recreation areas managed by five Federal agencies. It also provides the pass owner a discount on some amenity fees such as camping (see Access Pass Benefits section).
What does it cost and how long is it valid?
The Access Pass is free, and it is valid for the lifetime of the pass owner.
Who qualifies for the Access Pass?
The pass may be issued to U.S. citizens or permanent residents that have been medically determined to have a permanent disability that severely limits one or more major life activities. A permanent disability is a permanent physical, mental, or sensory impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working.
If I am partially disabled do I qualify for the Access Pass?
The disability requirements for the Access Pass are not based on percentage of disability. To qualify for the Pass the disability must be permanent and limit one or more major life activities.
How do I prove I'm permanently disabled?
Some examples of acceptable documentation include:
An Access Pass can be obtained in person from a participating Federal recreation site or office.
Can my permanently disabled child get an Access Pass?
Yes. This allows the caregivers to enter Federal Recreation sites for free when accompanying the child.
Why can’t I order an Access Pass online or through the mail?
You must obtain the Pass in person because the official issuing the Access Pass must review the documentation of your disability and verify your residency.
What does the Access Pass cover?
The Access Pass admits pass owner/s and passengers in a non-commercial vehicle at per-vehicle fee areas and pass owner + 3 adults, not to exceed 4 adults, where per-person fees are charged. (Children under 16 are always admitted free.) Note: Photo identification will be requested to verify pass ownership.
The Access Pass also provides the pass owner a discount on some Expanded Amenity Fees such as camping (see Access Pass Benefits section).
Where is the Access Pass honored?
The Forest Service, the National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and Bureau of Reclamation honor the Access Pass at sites where entrance or standard amenity fees are charged.
In addition, the Corps of Engineers and Tennessee Valley Authority may honor the Access Pass. (Visitors are always encouraged to contact the site they plan to visit and inquire about pass acceptance before visiting).
AMR reimburses gas mileage anywhere you drive to and from for Medicaid appointments.
This includes therapy appointments (Speech, OT, PT), doctor visits, hospital visits, and possibly if you need to travel for appointments ie: Primary Children's Hospital, etc.
Once you qualify for Medicaid (Katie Beckett-it's all the same) then you qualify for AMR.
Call 1-877-503-1261 to set up your appointment I believe 48 hours in advance. You tell them what the appointment is for (Speech, doctor, OT), then give them the address you're going to, your home address, what time the appointment is for and the date. If this is a repeated appointment (weekly, every other week) you can schedule out 3 months worth of visits with just one phone call. Then when the 3 months have passed, call again to reschedule for another 3 months.
Your reimbursement will come as a check in the mail. You don't have to keep track of your miles or worry about anything else.
If you are traveling for your appointment you can also get lodging and food paid for as well. They can set you up with a Ronald McDonald House or a discount on a hotel. They will also pay for you and your child's food up to a certain amount. The amount of the meals have to be discussed with an AMR representative so that will need to be discussed with them.
