So, how are you dealing with the social security, lack of income, insurance, copays and rent mortgage and so on. My wife was misdiagnosed with MS about 3 years ago even though she was asymptomatic. I just found out today that insurance for the with our current carrier will be 2.3× her SSI. We're still waiting on SSDI. What does one do? I can't work because I have to care for her. Oh, her neurologist dicided that she has CNS vasculitis. It's being treated as an AI disease. That came after two 8 day hospitalizations and 10 microstrakes.
I'm sorry. the best suggestions I have are to reach out to as many organizations as possible. Often if you are having issues with SSDA (unsure if this is the case), your local Congresscritter or Senator can be of assistance. (Our Senator's office even does thing's like find people dental care, help with utility bills, etc.) I'd suggest starting with Social Services, then calling the local hospital or your doc to see if there is an organization deals specifically with her illness in your town. Often these groups know the local resources. Ask your pharmacist if they know if there is a state prescription assistance program. If your town has a Council on Aging or a PACE center, that might also be a place to start looking. In quire at the nearest college, esp. if it has a College For Older Adults. And as always, ASK A LOCAL LIBRARIAN!!! (We know things.)
Im sorry to hear that, and I understand.
I’m feeling kinda lucky not to have a house of my own, or property...because I’d be losing it anyway. I’ve got back hospital bills, and I hope someday to pay them. If they can get blood out of rocks, I’d like to know HOW.
I’m on Disability also and it’s a struggle. Without my kids helping me, I’d be in worse shape.
