you might want to help her look into medicare/medicaid especially now that she isn't working. I was extremely resistant to the idea at first but it has proved to ne a life saver. Plus unlike other insurance companies she will be eligible for it because of her disorder and not turned away because of it. There is generally a lot of red tape at first, her current physician can usually help immensely with that, try not to get discouraged through the process. Its worth it in the long run. It is often difficult to find doctors who will take new medicare/ medicaid patients but I found that doctors that i was familiar with either long term or frequent agreed to see me. My counsulor was also able to help me get into doctors with which she had given many referral...kind of as a favor to her. Does any of this sound possible or helpful?
Good luck, let me know what you think
