Ryan White Fund and Medicaid
« on: February 19, 2014, 04:04:22 PM »
In Colorado, it seems they are trying to get people on Medicaid and off the Ryan White Fund.  I have to write a letter to declare why - all the clinics I go to do not take Medicaid which is one good thing

I also have Multifocal MotorNeuropathy and I am on Octagam. Octagam is not FDA approved for MMN so I would have to change to another medication (which might or might not work). 

I was wondering if others are running into this issue and have to write something?  I have a LSCW from my neurologist's office helping me some but some things she does not understand.

The $10,000 I get does not cover now but the insurance is good.  My premium now for the PPO is $828.00 (last year it was $676.00).  I have a $500 deductible and $1,000 co-insurance (80/20) that is covered with the Ryan White Fund.

The only thing close is an HMO at $454.00 a month with $6,000 deductible.

Thank you!
