If you have been denied foodstamps in the state of Texas are you automatically denied Medicaid?  Are the Disabled and Elderly Insurance programs not available to us until the 24 month waiting period for Medicare?  My 24 month waiting period with $500 per mth premiums and a $2000 deductible per year is probably going to make me lose my house.  I have exhausted all my resources as my diagnosis last year cost ME 20K!  I live alone (which I would have no other way) so any answers or suggestions would be greatly appreciated at this time.  I guess this question would be different from state to state.  If anyone can help - Thanks.  I have dementia with my MS and I was on the phone with my lovely government all day yesterday and am exhausted today.
I have MS but MS does not have me!

Welcome to the board.  I am sorry to hear of your situation.  I don't have any answers or experience there.  Good luck.
