When Nate got GBS, I applied for emergency MediCaid.
The other insurance Nate had did not cover Long Term care. He was quickly approved for MediCaid.
The MediCaid worker told me to file for SSD then, not to wait. He knew that it was going to be a long road for Nate. Nate had only State Disability then and it was all eaten up by Share of Cost MediCaid.
There is no telling who will get better fast and who won’t.
I’m not trying to be negative, but it takes awhile to get an appointment and then awhile to get approved.
Waiting will only make you wait longer when you need the financial help.
Nate was approved for SSD 5 mos after I applied for him.
He had no trouble getting approved.
He will be going on to SSI after February when his state disability runs out.
More papers to fill out.
I’m sanding down my pinky finger from filling out all the papers for so long.
