    You will need to contact the Medicaid office to get a definitive answer since Medicaid is a government program and not provided by a private insurance company. I would assume that it would not be covered if being used for cosmetic purposes. Perhaps there may be consideration if used for a medically necessary purpose, but, again, you will need to contact the Medicaid office to be sure and what conditions would need to be met, if any, to have it covered.

    I hope the information is helpful - thanks very much for your question.

    Medicaid is a state administered program. Each state has a different list of drugs that are covered. The state publishes a list of covered drugs which you can access on their website. Your physician might have the latitude to use Botox whether it appears on the list or not depending upon your unique medical condition. Your physician will certainly know what procedures and medications are covered.

    Since I cannot tell the age of the person that asked this question, I am just going to add this to the conversation in hopes that it will help the person that asked the question or possibly somebody else. If you are on, or eligible for, medicare, Botox is covered by medicare for medically necessary procedures.

    Medicaid is adminstered by the states to medications that are covered vary from state to state. Doctors who accept Medicaid know what medications that Medicaid covers. Botox is covered by Medicaid in many states to treat medical conditions, such as, migraines. Botox is not covered for cosmetic reasons by any state Medicaid programs.
