Quoting Kali'sMommy♥:" I get where you are coming from when you say jump through hoops with that damn paperwork. They denied ... [snip!] ... insurance or out of pocket for medical bills? They lie and they are good at it, and quite frankly it pisses me the smurf off."
That's awesome that there's still a way to have her insured.
It was tough for us because for the longest time, I refused. I honestly was pretty sure I'd prefer for them to be uninsured, and for us to pay out of pocket.
But there is not ONE doctor or dentist around here that will see them without an up front payment, in FULL. We don't have the money for that, if we did we'd be paying for insurance, kwim? So it got to where we either hippie-style it and do everything at home and hope for the best, or we got them Medicaid and could breath easier.
If we could do payments, we would've been fine, but since it's not an option we had to do something. And I STILL feel bad. I can't imagine the people who don't need the help, have the money to blow, and still get assistance. I'm like, damn, don't they feel guilty? lol
