Re: Financial Help
If she is under YOUR roof, you may not be able to get as much compared to if she had a different address. Thats the technical part County will even tell you that same statement. She is not paying bills, rent, food, utility etc. So there for she is somewhat like a dependent.
If *she* was on her own (different address), she would be able to recieve MORE from county. Food benefits, cash assistance, possibly help for transportation (bus/rail card). Not sure how it is out there, but in other areas, State benefits even kick in for medical coverage in some areas if you are on your own.
After I fought the feds and was approved for SocSec, Fed kicked in and now THEY are paying for my meds every month and the monthly co-pay (about $63) is covered by County. Only parts I have to take are Med Co-pays until I max it out (takes one script over 3 months to do that) and I am covered without co-pays for meds the rest of the year. SOME Dr visits I have a co-pay; most I don't.
It's a ball of wax. See if a local epilepsy Dr clinic can help for meds or may direct you for the WHERE to go for meds or med assistance if you can't pick up the crazy cost. (I should know; last years cost for my case could have bought a CAR if I didn't have coverage). Some Med Makers have forms to fill out for reduced cost to free meds depending... It all depends.
