I just got a call from a doctor I have been seeing for 25 years, she told me that all the prescript
ions that she writes for me will no longer be covered by Medcaid. They will cover 14 more days of each medication then I am on my own.
If I pay out of pocket it will be about $700.00 a month. I just received SSDI and it is my only income I receive for my son and myself. I spoke to my pharmacist at CVS and they said they really do not know what is going on. Maybe they won't pay because my doctor is in N.Y. and I live in Ct. My doctor treated me for $25.00 a visit, do they really think that in 2 weeks I'll find a psychiatrist to treat me for such a small amount of money.
I have multiple doctors because of chronic illnesses caused by lyme disease. Everyday I spend 3 hours infusing antibiotics so I don't go into congestive heart failure. Without my antibiotics I am completely bedridden and can't take care of myself or my son.
I have followed the new healthcare laws closely so I was aware of the effects. They kept saying that nothing will change! Now you can't get any information because the govt. is shut down!
I wanted to share this with all of you because I don't want this to happen to anyone else! Some of my medications cause life threatening consequences if not tapered down correctly, I guess the hospitals will be busy.
This is so outrageous and unbelievable.
I hope no one else has this happen. My prayers for all of us in pain!
