Quoting Miracles Abound!:" I also found out that the government assisted programs (i.e. Medicaid and others) require that you're ... [snip!] ... the rich can pay out of pocket. Nothing left for those in the middle, and uninsured moms-to-be seems to be a major epidemic!"
I work a full time job and pay for insurance, I feel your pain, in a sense. My insurance is decent, but not the greatest, it only covers 20-40% of certain procedures.... I'm finding out now there's really no help for those of us that try to better our lives, work and pay into the system that rewards irresponsible choices. Having Medicaid/care [whichever it is] would help us tremendously... but since I "make too much" and have had insurance for 8 months, I'll be denied. Hell, I've been denied WIC because of my income, but everyone keeps telling me to keep applying and reapplying... It's frustrating.
