I lost my job on July 9. I filed for unemployment and for Medicaid that same day. It is now August 20. I am still waiting on the health insurance coverage the Government insists by law I must have. I paid the $10 to "fast track" my application.
I called the State today to check on the status. I was told FSSA was waiting on documents from me.
Me: "I sent them in July"
Her: "We received them August 7th".
Me: "I guess you are not waiting on documents after all"
Her: [snippy] "We process everything in the order it comes in"
Me: " I know yOu only work there and do not process the paperwork, but don't you think that is ridiculous to take that long?"
Her: [really snippy] "We process thousands of applications, it can take 45 days".
Me: "I'm diabetic I'm out of medicine Monday, what am I supposed to do?"
Her: "We have other programs that might be able to help you"
Me:"Won't that require an application too that goes through the processing center?"
Her: [tired of me] "You will just have to go to the hospital or pay out of pocket. Thanks for calling FSSA".
Me: [unsaid] I can't go to the hospital I don't have insurance because I'm waiting on you to process an application from July 9th. And if I had the money, you dolt, I wouldn't be applying for the crappy Healthy Indiana Plan.
I can't wait until the Democrats consign us all to Government-run health plans. [sarcasm].
