My dear difficult child is in an Residential Treatment Center (RTC). Went in 6/11 and he is covered for 20 days through his health insurance which is the state insurance for low income families here in Florida. So his insurance benefits will expire 7/2, 7/1 being his last day in Residential Treatment Center (RTC). I inquired with the financial director at the Residential Treatment Center (RTC) about aid last week in case he needs to be there longer. She said the "only" assistance would be through Children and Family Services and gave me a name and a number. I called this guy and he said there are no funds available for kids that aren't on Medicaid, which difficult child is not. I told this guy I have worked really hard, 2, sometimes 3 jobs to keep us off of welfare. And he said, well, sometimes that pays off and sometimes it doesn't...hmph! Just think of all the money I saved the state. Anyway, he said all funds for kids that aren't on Medicaid are depleted. I understand that if this was a group, employment related policy I could appeal, but it isn't. Any suggestions anyone??
