How can we get her medicaid turned back on????Why did it get cut off in the first place?????
Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 11 months ago

I'm sorry but there are a number of reasons why Medicaid would have been stopped and there is no way I can know that information without seeing all the paperwork and talking to the people at the Medicaid office.

Normally it is stopped because they have some type of information indicating the person is making too much or has too many assets. But that is a general statement and there are many, many other reasons it could be.

I'm going to opt out but I suggest you seek a local attorney to make all the calls and obtain all the documentation.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
