    In the state of PA, they DPW will only count half of your income if your actually working as an "incentive" for people to work. You can also appeal and keep your medical going until you go to a hearing, although if it turns out that you're ineligible you can be charged with an overpayment afterwards. Find out if in the state you are in they give a deduction for "earned" income as opposed to "unearned" income. Somestate count income differently and many people don't know this. good luck, hope it's all a mistake.

    I made $300 in Texas and made too much for Medicaid. It's been 2 1/2 years since I had insurance but thankfully I get my medicare in Oct. I know what you are going through. I am so very sorry

    I live in Texas and can't even consider medicaid because of my age, im 21. I applied twice and then they told me no matter how much I need it I automatically get denied because of my age. Actually I have found it has been cheaper with no insurance, my doctors and pharmacy charge less than what my co-pay was. Also for the meds start calling the companies that manufacture them because you might get them for free, thats what I did for the CellCept. Talk to your doctor about their financial aid programs. My doctor has one but i'm still too young to qualify.

    Oh wow, that's terrible. I hate our healthcare system!!!! one of the richest countries in the world, EVERYONE should have universal coverage. I'm always bitching about that. And here I am complaining about our rules here in PA! IN PA for a family of one if you make over $200 a month you wont qualify under state funder MA, but theres a federally funded category that workers dont tell applicant about, this is the one with the deductions. in this category a one person Household can make up to $1800 BUT a dr has to fill out a form saying the person is dissabled 12 months or more. thats easier than it sounds. A person can be dissabled and still continue to work, for instance how many of you have walked into a local walmart and have been greated by someone in a wheelchair? that person is clearly dissabled but still working. Again this is in PA, im not sure in other states or counties.
