In Washington State,when your approved you get back paid from the day you 1st applied and if you got any help from say social services like I did then they pay them back 1st and give the remainder to you. But as for medical we are all automatically signed up for medicaid and pretty much all of our meds are free. There are no co pays at all the only problem is finding doctors that still take medicaid. Its mostly small town places that might not be taking on any new medicaid patients but all the hospitals accept it including all the big learning hospitals where you can go for monthly care. We get a monthly check and that is raised each year for cost of living exspensis.
