I'm at a loss. I have been fighting to try to get my son on medicaid or peachcare (insurance for low income families. Medicaid of course is free and peach care you pay a small fee) I keep getting switched back and forth, "You don't make enough to qualify for peachcare but you make too much to qualify for medicaid." Ugh. My son is showing signs of Autism and I want to get him the help that he needs and deserves but I can't afford to. I wanted to raise money to take him to get help from the Marcus Institute. Is that wrong? Please keep your answers respctful, please no bashing. I just need to do what is right for my son the best way I can.

Let me see what I can round up... Have you had the school do any kind of eval? That too is an option. They can't give a documented diagnosis but they can evaluate for services through the public school system. Keep hounding the case worker. there should be no gap. you qualify for one or the other. chances are you are on THE line and they just need to stick you somewhere! Here is a link to the local support group. They are FABULOUS! There are phone numbers and so not be afraid to call them! They are all so nice nad helpful. there is also a place to join the list-serv which is a wealth of info. Also Parent 2 Parent may have someone there able to help you find out what you need. Again VERY NICE people.
