    Dropped in to give my congrats as well!

    Also...Um...So they won't pay for you medical now? I don't understand how it works in the US. I am on disability too, and all my perscriptions and doctor visits, surgeries, dental, everything is all covered by them.

    Nope! They said that I did qualify when I made $300 a month so they are going to pay all the back bills but now that I get SS I make too much. If I am on disability for 2 years then I will qualify for Medicare which is mostly for elderly people and they will then pay 80%. I did receive a letter today that told me that there is now a insurance plan that I can join that doesn't disqualify you if you have a pre existing condition. The catch? It is almost 600 a month LOL. I think not

    Mari,
    Yes, it's really sad how the government is always thinking up loopholes to keep from helping the people who most need help.
    Go to CNN and read what the GOP is proposing to do to Medicare and Medicaid.
    They want to turn Medicare over to private insurance using vouchers and to hand all Medicaid money over to the states as block grants for state governments to administer.
    Could you imagine what would happen with that where you live?
    Hugs,
    Marla

    That would be a nightmare in Texas! They already administer the Disability thing and look how well they are doing with it! (NOT)
