I was Dxed with MS a little over 3 years ago, I take Copaxone shots. I also have RA, Diabetes, and high blood pressure. I have been out of work for a little over 2 years now and have been denied SS benefits, but know I will be finally approved in the next 6 months or so. I have had RA all my life, but it has been really taking its toll on me the last 4 years. Since being out of work my Cobra insurance timed out. I then got married and my husband carried me on his insurance, but he left me 3 months ago. Ge is going to drop me from his insurance, and I will have no coverage. Even with his insurance I paid 600 dollars every 3 months for my Copaxone. I live in my parents rental house now and all my 401k money has ran out. Will I be able to qualify for Medicaid? I was told i would not because I have a car that is only 3 years old and my mom and sister are making the payments so I can keep it. I also take 22 other prescription drugs, so you can imagine even mu co pays with insurance coverage. Any help would be appreciated.

I hate to hear about all you are going thru. I know how hard it can be to face multiple medical issues. If it was me I would get a lawyer that specializes in disability. They will be able to advise you on what to do and which direction to take. I wish the best of luck to you!

I think you can get a judge to make your husband carry you on his insurance plan so that you have benefits.
Go talk to a good lawyer and ask. The first consultation should be free if they were any lawyer at all.

Another thing you may consider is going to the MS World Message Board and asking their lawyer if you have any recourse.
Good Luck to you and God Bless you.
