Medicaid and MS

At our Christmas Book Club meeting we celebrated a year of friendship and fabulous discussions led by our two fearless leaders, and received troubling news.

Our first Fearless Leader, who retired this summer because her MS was making mobility challenging, was told by her current long-term Doctors that they were no longer participating in Medicaid – She had to find new ones.   

The troubling news is simple; Doctors in our area, that still participate in Medicaid are not accepting new patients. 

So, come 2011, she will be technically covered by a system that she has paid into for decades yet will be unable to actually receive any of that coverage.
