A network to share best practices for children with special needs
Having a child with special needs is very expensive,as you all know, some have private insurance + medicade, some just have medicade. However, it is still expensive, with medicade they pay for all or for most of the doctor appis, medications,supplies ect. But over the past few years medicade has cut back a lot,and we are having to pay more out of pocket. I understand that the economy is bad, there are alot of adults on medicade that abuse it, or don't need it because they are able to go out and get a job. I am a single mother of two boys and I am unable to work because my son needs 24 hour care, I wish I could find some job at home or out in the world. Back to the point, I do NOT think that it is fair to lower the budget of medicade for kids with special needs, I think that a law should be made to protect those kids,adults with special needs. These kids have to have a lot of medications and medical supplies, dr appt, surgerys ect. I feel like the government is taking away fr om the ones who desperately needs there medicade. Every month I receive a letter stating that medicade will no long pay for whatever, and that whatever is something my son has to have. Keep the disabled children on medicade separate for a healthy person on medicade without disabilities. These kids are being punished for what other people are doing and abusing the system, and I am not going to let it go without a fight, I have always fought for my son and his rights and I will continue!
