Its a "health" related concern question i think

I applied for medicaid as soon as i found out i was preggo, a while back and was recently DENIED medicare because "couldnt provide information" or something...basically because i didnt have my mothers birth certificate. I'm not quite sure why they would need hers seeing as i'm the one preggo but okay..the nurse at my doc said i have to re-apply with the same woman who helped me sign up in the first place & she said i shouldn't of been denied medicaid based on the simple fact i'm preggo and she said since i had applied at the office already i couldnt sign up for any other free health insurance (this news came to me after i had already been looking some options up online with no such luck). I'm wondering if anyone's every had this/similar problem before and are there any full coverage insurance agencies that you know of?

  • "If you or anyone who lives with you is 65 years old or older, certified blind or disabled, you need to provide information on bank accounts, insurance policies and other resources."

    Maybe this is involved?

  • I'm not sure, but the best thing would be to start out with someone at your county health department. The staff there knows the available local resources and who to contact.
