When I read about the billions of US dollars being spent on the Irag war each month, I am appalled. We spend more money on foreign citizens than our own poor and uninsured. Trickle down is not working. It is time for the Democrats. Universal healthcare's time has come.
This crisis is totally unacceptable. I applied for CHIP in December when my husband lost his job. We were told we had to go through Federal assistance first even though I knew we didn't qualify for that. The local office denied the Federal coverage and informed me that they were forwarding the information to CHIP. Okay, I knew that was coming. I called February 13 when I didn't hear anything. One person told me they had the application. Then I had another tell me they didn't have it. It was a vicious cycle that even the supervisor was involved with. Finally, as of JUNE 1, they are covered. I'm not getting reimbursed for ANY of my two kids visits. My 4 year old actually got really sick during this time.
The MOST insulting... I wrote a letter to the Governor and tried to file a report with the Insurance Commission's office. To this day, I haven't heard back from either. That's pathetic.
I wish I knew how to get more involved! Any thoughts would be great.
