Re: Medicaid and SSI denied..?

You should try speaking directly to your county's main health advisor. I'm currently on SSI due to a few health and personal problems and I doubt I would be on it unless I had the county medical advisor as my personal doctor.

I don't have downs obviously but was told they turn down over 95% of people who apply. I never asked to be on SSI and was completely against it actually, only circumstance and having no other option led me to need it at the time. I think that was another one of the deciding factors. The bureaucracy of it all and who is selected and why isn't fair I will admit. I'm sure there are many people more needing than I.
