We are faced with this problem right now. One child needs therapy and xrays and his medication is getting expensive.
Medicaid would really help keep us out of a bind, and I'm considering applying for my kids. I'm not sure if we qualify, but I'm currently pregnant and with our private insurance it cost nearly 100 dollars every time I need to see my Dr.
I mean you consider if you have kids, making sure you can provide for them but do you take into consideration, what if my kid is autistic and needs therapy and Dr appointments every other week xrays and testing every year. Do you consider before having kids if you can pay medical bills for a special needs child?
Idk but I didn't. I never thought I'd be put in a situation where my kids were anything but perfect 100% healthy and now I know better. So would you judge me for applying for medicaid?
