Time to give up on Medicaid...

On 9/20/2018, we ultimately came to decision that Medicaid was no longer affordable under the terms they believe to be correct & we were going to need to let them go (meaning the $220 spendown they are saying needs to be paid will not be paid).  Of course this means without that coverage, I also need to eliminate the expenses that Medicaid would have been covering if I still had their coverage, this means no more disability doctors, case managers or medications (that means no aid with my disabilities from professionals or medications that was being prescribed by them, which is going to make it near impossible to get a job, so I've decided it's time to stop looking; the worst of this is going to be the depression, which has easily reached the suicidal point ever year they have come to these types of decisions, expected to be they are including a value of income that isn't actually there as a result of their misunderstand regarding rent).

Aside from the Medicaid spendown, ending the Cost Sharing program with medical insurance & expecting me to pay my own premiums on Medicare (something the Cost Sharing program would have continued covering if not for Medicaid pulling this shit for about 5 years already), they've also lowered the Food Stamp value to a mere $20 per month (from $192, the new value not really even being worth messing with).  All together, it's effectively negated the entirety of the additional $379 per month from my father's retirement (collected as a dependant under disability), showing that the Department of Workforce Services (the ones responsible for Medicaid decisions) does not feel I am entitled to being able to receive as a dependant on my father's retirement & wants the money for themselves...  The decision my father made to start taking retirement before the age of 70 effectively lowered how much he could have been getting, the decision to take it earlier was he felt it would have helped me out with my living expenses, but I'm now in worse shape than I was before it happened (something that was corrected by Social Security after over a year of waiting, although we're still waiting on the back payment from months I did not receive that money; Medicaid managed to screw it up again in under 12 hours after the review was completed)...

Additionally, it's been decided that because my Medicare supplemental Part D coverage (through SilverScript) doesn't actually cover my non-disability medications (allergy & acid reflux pills), that we probably won't be keeping that going either (maybe paying it only when I need to get antibiotics or my asthma inhalers, which they are being picky about even when it comes to inhalers).  Unless there is a quick & easy way to pay this premium with SilverScript, I will be going without Part D coverage also, that means it will be pointless to even go to the doctors unless it's severe enough to have to stay in the hospital.

There's not a lot I can do about the Part A & B coverage through Medicare, this is one matter I don't have a decision in...  If I'm receiving income from Social Security, they are going to be taking my premiums out of my monthly checks before they even get to me, so those are going to get paid regardless of whether I want that coverage or not (originally I was just going to go without coverage entirely & let whatever happens to me finish me off, even if it was an illness that could have been easily cured with a antibiotic).

I have a number of notices hidden around my home for a number of purposes (to be found when I'm dead), I will be adding the situation regarding Medicaid's lack of judgment to what is already on those statements.  If I should end up getting killed by an illness that could have been easily prevented, those notices will be found when they start moving furniture, then the facts that DWS attempted to hide by continuously flagging my blog within a matter of days (previously on Blogger/Blogspot, but deleted on 9/19/2018 when it became rendered useless after the blog got locked from being changed & layout options deliberately broken) will come out with a corpse to go with it.  This is likely to be sooner than later, when you consider I won't have any aid with my depression once I drop Medicaid due to no longer being affordable (not to mention the poor decisions that lead to it, although I'm not doing this out of spite, I have to focus on getting as many of my living expenses paid as possible before adding additional unreasonable expenses that I can maybe live without with some adjustments, those adjustments being I cut off treatment that was for my disabilities) & every year I would get one of these decisions from Medicaid, I would be on the edge of committing suicide, it's highly likely a corpse on the news with a suicide letter next to him detailing the decisions that were made that drove him to it will become a reality in the near future...
