Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Have you contacted the local religious organizations and public service groups in your area, like the local MS Association or Catholic Charities or even United Way to seek assistance? If you do not qualify for Medicaid (Medi-Cal), that is likely what you will be forced to do if you are over the income/asset limits.

Thank you for you information, but I don't think they can help. I will contact the MS society though to see if they can suggest anything.

Thank you for your reply.

You never know who can or cannot help until you ask them. You need to contact all of those agencies and see what they can do. Even if each one can only do a little bit, that little bit adds up and it is more than you have right now.
