Thanks Lynnwood, unfortunately how it works is medicare is first then champva then medicaid. If medicare doesn't pay part of it then neither will the other two. So basically if medicare doesn't back me up none of them will. Which has me thinking. The transplant hospital takes medicare. Which cost about
1 million for the transplant and 600 thousand after that per year to keep up on maintenance. A long with that it cost about
3000 a month for anti rejection meds. So I'm thinkin if doctors can't afford to seem medicaid patients how can a hospital cover that? Plus this 2014 stuff that is supposed to start in 4 years. The doctors only give me a 60% chance of living 3. I don't know maybe my meds are playing tricks on me. but I just don't have a lot of fight in me right now. They switched my anti-d that I have been on four 6 years to something that is supposed to help my fibro with a anti-d. Could be why I got no fight left in me. I can't seem to stop crying today. Lousey Drugs!
I'd hop down off my soap box but I'd probably break my leg and no one will take my insurance to fix it!
