Im losing medicaid the end of this month because Cory turns 19 this month and while, he can continue to get it, I cant as his caretaker. This means I have to apply for it on my own as a disabled adult. I have done so but the same people who decide Social Security Disability also decide Medicaid for Disabled Adults, and I am not banking the farm on them approving a medicaid application before a disability application. Seems like it would almost force social security's hand. So...on to question 1: Has anyone ever seen the above happen? LOL. Question 2: Im thinking of getting a medical insurance policy just to cover myself because of how darn sick I am and I really cant afford to be without insurance since I just had surgery. HOWEVER...Im worried about the pre-existing clause. Would that come into effect if I went straight off medicaid onto another insurance? Question 3: I have looked at several policies and they list prescription coverages as follows: $10 generic, 25/50 - $2000 maximum coverage This cannot mean that they only cover $2000 in prescriptions total per person per lifetime or per year can it? My gosh...my topomax is like 800 a month. Its not even worth it to me to buy insurance if the prescriptions are gonna be gone in two months...well...I mean I would have the docs...but what do I do about the scripts because the needymeds folks all say you cannot HAVE prescription drug coverage. I would have it just be out of it. Or am I reading it wrong and its just 2000 at a time. That would make more sense, because we all know medications are high.
