Changes to our Medicaid

Post by Campbell » Fri Mar 27, 2015 10:34 am

I will be taken off SSI/Medicaid as of August 1, simply because I turned 62 in June. I have been disabled for the last 20 years+. I have a need for dental care, prescriptions, Physical Therapy, and in obtaining a wheel chair is motorized, if possible. My husband is 64 and the help would be for both of us.
We are type II diabetics, and I have mental health problems, degenerative joint disease, and high blood pressure. Our income is $1700 per month in SS. He has insurance and I am obtaining it as soon as we find a program that is sufficient for my needs, and affordable. Any help you can suggest or pointing us in the right direction is appreciated. Thank you.

We do have information on free medical care programs that may cover you instead of Medicaid. They may usually cover dental and give discounts on prescriptions. As far as the wheel chair, some charities may donate them from thrift stores. Or there is also information on Medical Equipment on the site. But also you should look into Medicaid too, and find out how to transition to MEdicare now that you are 62. Until then, locate information on free medical care and insurance.

I am a married mother of two living in Connecticut. My husband and I are both full time workers, with me working a second job part time. We are not making enough to afford child care or income is too high for Medicaid, or even pay off old bills that affect our credit. We cannot apply for Medicaid from Care4kids because according to the state we make too much.
The problem is, we would need to make an extra $400 a week to afford child care and without severely limiting the funds we need to live off of or $400 less a month to meet criteria for Care4kids, we cannot afford for one person to be out of a job and finding a new one with different hours is proving extremely difficult. It would be nice to know if there is something that we can use to help us, we are stuck and have no efficient ways out and are at the ends of our patience trying to figure all this out. If we could get some feedback, or advice or even a little bit of help that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time,

Brice

Hi, was just on your website. We’re very low income family. I'm on Medicare and Medicaid. My husband trying so hard to get a job. Nothing much at all happened. How can we get help to pay our rent for now, until we get back on our feet again as our Medicaid benefits have changed/gone down? This is the first time in our life going through this tough time. Please let me know if there's anything. Thanks you so much.
