I am mentally disabled. I have diabetes very badly, too. My raw gross medical/prescription bills come to over $2500 a month, approximately. I depend, as a single guy, on Medicare and Medicaid and a supplemental insurance for prescriptions to help pay for my doctor visits/labs/medicine. Without Medicaid, I would probably die in a month or so. My girlfriend and I have decided we want to marry in 2014. So, I visited the Medicaid office hoping to find out some information on the premium/spenddown for Medicaid coverage if we combine our incomes in marriage. My case worker told me because of Obama Care and the uncertainty they no longer can tell me this information, in fact they can't even tell me if I'll be eligible or not for Medicaid any longer, even if I offer them some income figures from my girlfriend and my SSDI. She told me I have to get married and then find out what Medicaid will decide. There's a good chance I'd get kicked off of Medicaid, which would make it impossible for my girlfriend and me to cover my medical expenses on our own, like copayments and deductibles which have been waived because I'm on Medicaid now. I talked to my pastor about this, and he said, "Welcome to the world of health care politics." He didn't offer a solution, but to make a wise choice about marriage or not. I love my girlfriend, and it's not right to not be able to marry for fear of losing all benefits if you do. God has always taken care of me in the past, and I suspect He will in the future. But I can't live without my girlfriend, either. God put us together. Why would He make it so hard to survive afterwards? I'm confused and tired of all this, and just pray that God will continue to work in our lives and hearts as we decide not to get married so that I can keep health benefits.
