hello BlueSkies-
I never recieved Medicad for the kids, because there father provided health insurance. So I did not have any insurance for a long time, it was tough, raked up a lot of medical bills. Once I recieved my back pay, I was able to pay all those bills.
I of course revieved medicare right away, and it was retro active back 6 years when I first applied.I was very happy at that point, I still remember the relief, it was difficult being a single mom at the time and disabled, and supporting 3 teenagers
