hello im new here on this site. I had a question for everyone. I finally got to meet with the transplant team and so far did some tests. I will be getting a call or letter saying when i am going to be on the list. Social worker says after 3 years my medicare will drop and so will all my other insurances i have will drop too. I have medicare, medicaid and ssi. What do you do when you have no insurance and no way to pay for meds that are over $3,000 a month. This is why i am on gov. help. i think its stupid and not fair. please help.

  • Alternately, perhaps you could get a job?  Even if you worked at Starbucks or another retail job, you could get medical insurance.  Maybe even if you worked less than 40 hours a week!

    • thank you for your reply. i am 42 years old. oklahoma is different.

  • Do you have Medicare because you are 65 or older?  If that's the case, then you are covered by Medicare forever.  Alternately, will you turn 65 within the 3-year window that Medicare covers your meds?  If not, check with your Medicaid caseworker.  I'm sure you're not the first one to have this problem...
