Hello everyone, this is my frist post and i'll try to get to the point.
My wife just found out that she's pregnant. I'm excited, as is she. We weren't "planning" it, but did want it in the future. My issue is she is a housewife and my work doesn't offer insurance for spouse. So, she is completely uncovered right now (i know, not the brightest idea). However, we just called medicaid and they said you could make no more than 1685.00 and I make just a hair above 1700.00 monthly. So, it looks like medicaid is not an option.
My question is this, are there any other options of assistance. We honestly can't afford the pregnancy right now, much less when she has to go into the hospital.
I know it's mostly my own fault for not taking care of this before, but now I have no other choice and honestly i'm starting to panic a little. Any hel would be great. Thanks in advance.
Yea maybeyou should just take her in to do all tha paperwork for the medicaid and when you get assigned a caseworker hopefully they'll be able to wrk something out. Its worth the shot. I mean sorry to say but not all the people that work in the medicaid office know the answers to the questions they are asked...Which could lead to just answering a round about answer instead of saying nothing at all or whatever.
Anyway like I said its worth the shot...
Good luck and trust me your not alone in the troubled financial dept. Especially with this suprise arrival....
