Advice Needed…


I need advice. First, I want to say that I am not asking for money, not asking for anyone to buy pens, I just need good, reliable information about medicaid and ssi. If you leave comments, please be helpful. I am about at the end of my rope and can't deal with negativity at this time. Here is the situation.

My husband and I are both disabled. He receives social security disability and ssi. I receive only ssi disability. We own our home, a couple of sheds and the land they sit on. The value of them is $58000. My son wants to take us back to Texas to stay with them because he needs to get back to work. My husband won't be able to drive for about 2 months and will need help getting up, etc. I am worried that if we aren't living in our home then it will be counted as a resource and we won't qualify for medicaid anymore. That would be disastrous because our medicines cost more than we make per month. Does anyone have knowledge of how this works? Am I right in thinking that we might lose our medicaid? Would we have to apply for Texas medicaid since we will be living there with our son? Please comment or email if you are knowledgeable about how this works.

Thanks, Blade...

I don't know much about Medicaid and SSI, but I DO know, that you DO NOT WANT TO move to Texas, the state with the highest uninsured populace in the country. Their medical help is virtually nonexistent.
You probably want to talk to a lawyer (many do pro bono work, I.e. free work), or check out at your local college or university, if they have a law department. Students there might be able to help you guys for free, and get credit for one of their courses.
Also, you could try to talk to the Social Sec department, and ask them all the questions you have.

Good luck to you!
