I don't have any health insurance because when I first got sick after the three month FMLA, my job fired me. I never imagined I would be sick a year and a half later (and sadly, possibly forever) So I opted to not keep my cobra. (This goes down as one of the worst mistakes in my life!!!). So I have applied for medicaid, they are reviewing my dissability eligibility at this time. I get $1650 a month from Unum Provident my LTD company. If I am approved I will have to pay medicaid close to $800 a month to have the medicaid. I don't know what to do. my pain Dr. doesn't accept medicaid, and every MD I know of who works with CFIDS pts all don't take medicaid either. From what I understand medicaid will not pay for labs, tests, or meds perscribed by non-medicaid providers. I don't know what to do! I really need insurance, but is it worth it for $800 a month if I can't find doctors who believes and will work with me on trying to fight this disease? HELP!!!! This delimma is driving me crazy!!!!
