  • it's all considered pa. medicaid and all. there are no degrees. either u are on it or not. but there is no reason to be ashamed if u are if thats where ur going.

  • Ohh. I have been on Medicaid, gotten on WIC and FoodStamps AND lived in public housing. Am I bum? Nope. I got stuck and was not going to be homeless or go hungry. I have paid taxed for years and so I am going to use what I paid for when I need it. It isnt the most glam thing to do but you do what you need to for your kids. And you work your ass off to never get there again.

  • It's all public assistance. I think it is easier to get the medicaid part of it though.

  • who cares about what others think? Your husband got laid off & there are NO jobs-I think a lot of people are getting assistance, losing jobs, cars, etc! Go for it, Mama!
