I just found out yesterday that my Medicaid had been discontinued. I will not be able to afford treatment now. I had a very tough day yesterday trying to deal with this. You get so tired of fighting the battle to fight the battle. I told my kids yesterday I don't know if I have the strength any longer to stand up to this constant argument with the government and insurance companies. It seems the insurance companies are the ones that dictate what the doctor prescribes by way of refusing to pay for particular drugs the doctor considers to be a possible treatment. I now have no options for treatment because I have no insurance. I am 61 years old and I guess I'll have to wait until I am 66 or 67 my government prescribed retirement age to have Medicare. Here I am told my income has to be lower than $6,000 a year in order to qualify for Medicaid. Can anybody survive on $6,000 a year? We may have Medicaid but what else?

Call the Pharm company for assistance of your medication! You have to fit a certain criteria but its worth the try Talk with your Rheumatologist he or she should have resources .
