My neice was working as an exec Warner -

hello -My neice was working as an exec for Time Warner - she fell ill during this time and her Blue Cross Blue Shield refused to have her tested for Lymes Disease - a $2K test. AFter much time, I gladly paid for the test and it came back positive in the extreme. During here coverage under BCBS-they said they do not cover Lymes Disease and she continued to go toDrs. who proscribed hundreds of antibiotics. Her alimentary system is now paralyzed- Time Warner let her work from home for a while and have now terminated her position. They told her she only had 3 months of COBRA - I have been paying for her holistic medical bills and she is quite a bit better, however, after her termination in Dec 2015 and the mere 3 months of Cobra - I can no longer afford the previous $3K a month and now much more for her holistic doctors, which are the only doctors who have been able to keep her alive. She weighs 74 lbs. and can barely walk. She also has needed psychological counseling since she went from an honour college grad to a great job to an invalid within 3 years. Our question is what do we do now? Disability says it will take a year to get her on Medicare -that Medicaid will only cover emergencies. I thought Cobra was for a much longer period - and nowwe need to know about Obamacare - how to get her on it, what will we have to pay since she is unemployable and will they allow payment forthe holistic treatment that is the only thing that is keeping her alive.This is a family nightmare and we are having trouble getting clear answers from anyone,. Especially what doctors who take Medicare willtreat her when we get that or Obamacare when we get that. In the meantime, we are just hanging on and praying.thanks,kdw

A question regarding Medicaid. In 2015 I applied

A question regarding Medicaid.In 2015 I applied for NJ Medicaid. I am 62 years of age. I was unemployed for the entire year, went through a NJ workforce training, but to my dismay cannot find any employment, after much interviewing.I sold some stock during the year, since I had no income and my unemployment expired, and I am now concerned the capital gains would affect the Medicaid. I didn't realize this, thinking only job earnings are only considered.I did not file any claims or see a doctor during this period. Can you offer any information in regard to this. Will there be a penalty?

I am a spouse covered on my spouses employment medical insurance

I am a spouse covered on my spouses employment medical insurance in Chicago, my issue is that the requirements of this insurance have become more and more intrusive into what I consider to be doctor patient privacy issues. They are requiring all kinds of additional activities with deadlines and fees attached if you don't comply. Isn't this a violation of my personal rights and doctor patient privacy, where I have no alternatives but compliance without incurring fees in addition to the health insurance costs and copays.

My privately paid health insurance (my employer did not offer

My privately paid health insurance (my employer did not offer health ins.) was cancelled as of 12/31/2015 because I am over 64yo and Medicare A/B eligible. However; due to my husbands health and inability to speak, I missed the initial enrollment for B therefore will have no insurance until 7/1/2016. We do not qualify for any social programs (medicaid, etc.) due to my currant income. I understand there are Special Enrollment Periods - I need to qualify for one! We live in PA and no private insurer will enroll me in a short term plan due to my age.

Hi. I used to be on Medicaid when I wasn't working. When I started working again I didn't cancel it right away. First I tried to cancel and was put on hold forever and hung up. Then I just figured that I could just let it run on and that it would be okay to just let it expire whenever it expires. I know it's my fault for not canceling right away, but now they're saying I owe them for premiums since I started working again and it adds up to over $5500. That's monthly premiums from January to about October and a monthly prescription I which I continued getting because I didn't know how to transfer to my new health insurance with work. So the question is, am I really liable for all of this? I started working in December of last year as part time. And then went full time this year in June. I have a meeting with them again on Wednesday next week to resolve this. What can I do in such a short amount of time?

Hello, Im having some issues at work. I am a machinist that works on Lathes and Mills at night. I come in at 3pm and everyone else leaves at 5pm. Most of the time, about 80% I am left alone, till 1am in the morning I fear that if an accident happens I won't have help or worse wont be able to call 911. On top of it i get short changed almost every paycheck and have to wait for the correction till the following pay period. Is all this legal in the state of Illinois?

My husband was hospitalized after visiting the emergency room.

My husband was hospitalized after visiting the emergency room. We thoughthe was on medicaid but when we checked prior to the visit was told he was dropped because he is 66 years old.We never were notified. A medicaid representative filed for him(in the hospital) but my w-2's were used plus our joint bank account. Consequently I signed a form saying I would not be responsible for his medical bills. Can I take what would be my portion of the account and put it in my separate account. It is approximately $19, 000. I don't earn a huge amount- this year it is $16,000. so far and he has no earnings this year. Will Medicaid penalize us for this? I have already given them the account statement. I fear this will make him ineligible for retroactive coverage and he does not have medicare. Thank you for any advice.
