I'm tired of people on my baby-app telling me to apply for medicaid.
There are a number of threads about cost of care. I've said, with no judgement about if this is a lot or not, that my care + delivery will probably cost $4,000-6,000, since I am due in January- so the out of pocket year resets (and delivery alone costs about $2,500, and the out of pocket max is about $6,000).
I also have a $75 co-pay with my OB, which I mentioned on another thread. Again, with no judgement of whether this is a lot of money or not.
I am getting countless messages to apply for medicaid, with many saying "the qualifying amount is higher for pregnant women".
Yes- paying a few thousand dollars sucks, but it isn't going to even make a dent! We are so far beyond being able to qualify for medicaid. It seems like bizarre advice.
