Life just gets funner and funner!

I got the word today that I have, indeed, lost my medicaid. $800 a month for meds? I don't think so! I'll see what the other options are and, if nothing makes sense, I'll just leave everything in the Lord's Hands. That's where they've been all along anyway.

That makes no sense, did you come in to a big pile of money that suddenly disqualified you from Medicaid? did they give you a reason for said disqualification? it is my understanding that having a higher income than when you did qualify is the only way that can happen. But if you'd hit the lottery or something I'd figured you'd have, mentioned it.

Did they give you a reason why you were dropped?

That's seriously bad news. Look into other payment options. I'm getting discounts because I'm not on insurance and it helps. Of course, I make just a bit too much to qualify for more aid. Look into your options.

Look into alternative medicine. Consider moving states. Your life is on the line here.

Trust in the lord, but use your God given talents to find solutions.

Unbelievable! How can this be true . . . ?

I guess you could call your congressman and see if he will make a phone call to light a fire under them.

Yes, Michael, our income went up a SMALL amount, which put us over whatever the limit was.

I'm just too cotton-pickin' RICH, Mike! ;-)

Well, Sixbears, I've had three friends suggest options already, plus I'll be talking to my heart doctor's nurse again tomorrow.

Change (small rise) in income, Janet.

Nah, SF, this is just some arbitrary amount set up by some guy who probably makes five times what he expects others to live on. Besides, the "machine" WANTS old folks to croak, so they can save all that lovely money for other things.

i'm pretty sure we are seeing the tip of the euthanasia/get-rid-of-the-useless-eaters plan.
haven't we heard the stirrings of this plan for years now?

Incredible. And to think that drug addicts, illegals and other turdies with self inflicted health problems get a free ride?

Medicare Part G
If you are an older senior citizen and can no longer take care of yourself and need Long-Term Care, but the government says there is no Nursing Home care available for you, what do you do? You may opt for Medicare Part G.
The plan gives anyone 75 or older a gun (Part G) and one bullet. You may then shoot one worthless politician.
This means you will be sent to prison for the rest of your life where you will receive three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating and air conditioning, cable TV, a library, and all the health care you need. Need new teeth? No problem.
Need glasses? That’s great. Need a hearing aid, new hip, knees, kidney, lungs, sex change, or heart? They are all covered!
As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you at least as often as they do now!
And, who will be paying for all of this? The same government that just told you they can’t afford for you to go into a nursing home.
And you will get rid of a useless politician while you are at it. And now, because you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any more income taxes!

That's the way it went in parts of Europe, dh.

Ain't the modern American way grand, Glen?

I joked to my wife the other day that all I had to do to get my drugs for free was to commit a felony, Michael! - lol
