talked with Medicaid lady


I managed to be very nice to the Medicaid lady I talked to when I called to investigate just what kind of services I can't get since I'm over 21 and should obviously be in perfect help by some magical ingredient in that birthday cake 11 years ago. *being very sarcastic, although I really was nice* She told me that legislation was passed in July that is responsible for this. No eye exams or glasses. No hearing aids. And no teeth cleaning, although you can get an emergency extraction. What's wrong with this picture? I don't even know if I can get my eyes checked anymore. You can have the exam if you need surgery. So I don't know where that leaves me. I could probably kick and scream enough and get an exam to check my pressure. But this is plain stupid. Adults lose their hearing and vision. And if you don't get your teeth cleaned, guess what happens to them. Bingo! They're damaged and have to be extracted! Anyway, so I said, "So I need to be complaining to the legislators about poor quality health care?" And of course she confirmed it, and we then moved on to finding me a potential new doctor. I have a lot of phone calls to make. If I call by the end of the day tomorrow, I can start seeing the new doctor next month. Obviously, it's prudent for me to do emotion mind later and make decisions now. So I'll be making phone calls and writing to government people to spew my venom. *grin* I'll be polite, but I'm not mincing words. My quality of life is directly affected by these decisions, and I'm not happy about it.
