As you guys know, I applied for food stamps and medicaid. I got the food stamps no sweat. I was "supposedly" approved for medicaid. Hospital backed that up when she contacted them for a billing number. Ok...............so I've been waiting more than a month for my card to show up so I could start making much needed doctor appointments. Today it shows. I should be thrilled. I was for about 5 mins until I actually really read the card. Are you ready? Drum roll please................ The card can ONLY be used for FAMILY PLANNING purposes. In other words, birth control. 1. I was done with menopause 3 - 4 yrs ago. 2. I could (if needed) get free birth control via our health dept. WTH would I go through the PITA to sign up for medicaid for FREE BIRTH CONTROL?? I TOLD the stupid cw that I didn't have any use for BC as a post menopausal woman. I told her at least FIVE times! I told her the reason I was applying was I needed my MEDICATION for medical conditions that require them. omg I am major POed at the moment. No, I am livid. (I will calm down eventually) omg I knew this cw is a frigging moron (Nichole had her) but this is just totally ridiculous on so many levels.
