My younger difficult child is a doofus - is in trouble a lot and usually deserves it. HOWEVER, this time I think he is getting @#$%^ed. Some of you will remember that last spring he and wife (she was driving) had a terrible car wreck. She broke her right arm and left leg and was in the hospital and rehab for quite awhile. At the time they had the accident, they were on Medicaid. During the time she was in the hospital, they missed a deadline for submitting some paperwork so they lost food stamps, medicaid, etc. They are only now finally getting the food stamps started again. I'm sure it is mostly due to their negligence in getting things done on time. Still.... Anyway, they were told several times that the medical bills would be covered. Yesterday they found out that Medicaid is not going to pay their (over $200,000) bill. At the time they qualified difficult child was working full time. Admittedly, it was a crappy job but at least he was working. Now he is unemployed. daughter in law works part time as a waitress for $3.85 / hour plus tips. But now they don't qualify? Anyway, I told him to see my lawyer; they will have to file for bankruptcy. THey have no other bills, just the medical stuff. Their credit rating is low or nonexistent so it won't make that any worse than it already is. It just will be one more thing for me to pay (lawyer, filing fee, etc.) What a bunch of doo-doo!
