Okay, so why is her child eligible (or not eligible) for Medicaid? Or SCHIP or whatever it’s called in Colorado? Does the school system not provide insurance for its employees and their families? Did she decline coverage? This raises more questions than it answers. Obviously she is depending on the state, if she claims the state is responsible for her child’s medicine. So, if she is employed, the question has to be why was the kid on Medicaid and, since she had a job, why she didn’t just buy his medicine?
Zumante had struggled with asthma since he was 3 months old. But when he was 6, the condition became serious enough for his mother to apply for benefits under Social Security, which also entitles him to Medicaid.
That means he was on permanent disability through social security. Since his mother didn’t make alot of money it would be SSI/SSP. They should have also been receiving a cash payment for him.
My mother was medi/medi here in California and they NEVER pd for her Advair, either she did or if she didn’t have the $ I did.
There was an article recently here about the highest % of recipients of public assistance in MO, I believe. The article was trying to slam Walmart, but looking closely at the numbers, the employers with largest % of employees on public assistance is the state itself.
