I just got off the phone with Social Security. I had a phone interview to apply for Medicaid. We got denied because supposedly we make too much money. What a joke that is.
I just don't understand how they can turn down a child with a disease that is life-long because of the parents' salary. As parents of a diabetic, you KNOW how expensive this disease is. Here is a breakdown of her medication costs:
needles: $10 for 200 (this doesn't last a month)
syringes: $10 for 200 (this doesn't last a month)
alcohol pads: $2.37/100
BG test strips: $20/200 (we have to refill every 2-3 weeks)
Ketone monitor test strips: no deductible...insurance won't cover them
Ketone urine strips: $10/100
Her specialist appointment is $81 per visit. this is her co-pay amount. Health insurance is such a joke. My husband works for the state and has the worst health insurance. Shouldn't state employees receive good benefits??
I'm so bummed. Hopefully, i can shake this crummy mood. Today is hubby's first day of fall semester, so he will be gone a lot more than over the summer :(
Thanks for letting me vent.
