 Carol's Journey

Unexpected Blessing

Unexpected blessing Monday by email
From supervisor with following detail
Asking temps if we would be interested
Working M-F until 3:00 hours extended

Two of us accepted the offer everyday
Another can only stay later Thur and Fri
Extra hours until further notice indicated
Few weeks or months time not specified

For me it results in eight hours cut restored
God answered prayer by His plans in store
His timing for near future of temp position
Providing my needs in healthcare transition

Family doctor provided 21 day sample supply
For anti-inflammatory workers comp denied
She approved 100 day RX via online pharmacy
Even authorizing additional three refill quantity

Difficult news this week with serious implications
Might be forced on Medicaid based on application
Link below contains shocking info from Fox News
All low income people need to be warned about too

Found out Friday I am not eligible for any discount
Income reported Medicaid level due to low amount
October application reported wages up to that date
Not yearly total since it was hard to clearly estimate

I am eligible to purchase one of 43 plans on website
Premiums price ranges too high at lower salary rate
Deeply sense it is now in my best interest to appeal
Also asked to revise income to projected yearly total

Escalation department will call me 2-5 business days
To hopefully allow updated change without any delays
My prayer is my revised income will be enough evidence
To remove Medicaid status and qualify me for assistance

By the end of December I can obtain a letter of exemption
To avoid penalty for lack of coverage until appeal decision
With limited health insurance next year at the temp agency
Lower rate will help offset costs and provide some stability
