Changing name for medicaid. Jeiden&Ciana's Mami 2 kids; San Antonio, Texas 1180 posts

How do you go about fixing the name on medicaid. They spelled my daughters name on her medicaid. They put an "S" on her name instead of an "F".

Ugh, this is the second problem I've had with her name. They spelled her middle name wrong on her SS card.

I don't have Medicaid but they put the wrong middle initial on my insurance card (Humana) and when I called to inquire about fixing it, they said it didn't matter. As long as ID number matches up with the SS number it should be fine.

The way her name appears on her SS card is how they will put it on the medicaid card.

When I was on it, my name was spelled wrong the entire time. No one ever seemed to care- but they o ly had Katharyn instead of Kathryn. There should be a number for members on the back of the card. Call and tell them the name is incorrect and you need a replacement card.

And if they dont then just call the number on the back of the card to have it corrected and they will mail you a new card with the corrected name on it...you can just continue to use the card you have now though till it comes in .

My daughters name is Feliciana, and they put Seliciana... It just bothers me, but I had problems getting people to find the insurance and now I know why. I was actually giving them her right name and not the wrong one.

Her name is spelled wrong on her SS card as well. I need to get that fixed. But on her social it's just one of her middle names that is wrong.
