What does it take to qualify for assistance?
To the Editor:
I am a diabetic. I am not able to work and don't even have a home. I am living with a friend for now.
On July 10, I was taken to Bloomington Hospital by EMS. My sugar was 546.
I have asked for Medicaid so I can get my medicine, but they turned me down.
Who does qualify for Medicaid?
I don't have any way to buy insulin. I take a shot two times a day, plus pills. I have applied for disability but was turned down again.
I guess there is no place for people who really need assistance in Putnam County.
Medicaid better get their prioritites straight. I am 58 years old, so I am not a young woman.
But I guess Medicaid doesn't help us.
