Does anyone out there have Michigan Medicaid? We have a deductible to meet each month. Mine is almost $800.00 and it's impossible to pay that when I only receive a Social Security Disability check. Is any one else having a similar issue?

Good heavens that is terrible. How about SS Medicaid? That deductible is only about $100 a year. Since I know nothing about Michigan I am not even going to try to answer, but I bet Lori (Tavish) will know about it. She checks in frequently so watch for her post. Hugs MK

I'm in Michigan, but have no ideas about the Medicaid rules either. If you are having trouble meeting it for care related to cancer, you may want to talk to the American Cancer Society to see if they have resources to help with costs. You may also want to work with your provider to see if they can waive any co-pays or set up a payment plan.
Sorry I can't help more.
