Q) I have been applying for medicaid more then once. I have not received it yet. I have medical problems and I can’t even get help. I have worked in this state since I was 15 yrs. old. I need my medication. This is not right!
A) I know it must be difficult for you. Please follow up with your local medicaid office with your application. You may need to visit in person to get the status on your application.
Keep in mind: If your state is not expanding Medicaid and you can’t afford a health plan you can get low-cost health care at a Community Health Center near you.
Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) health centers provide low cost health care through county clinics. Even if you have no health insurance or can’t get Medicaid you only pay what you can afford, based on your income.
HRSA Health centers provide services such as:
- Wellness checkups.
- Diagnostic and treatment when you’re sick
- Pregnancy care
- Children immunizations and checkups
- Prescription drugs and dental care
- Substance abuse care and mental health services
HRSA are federally-funded health service centers that provide care for you, even if you have no health insurance or cannot get medicaid. Remember, you only pay what you can afford, based on your income.
