I don't even know what to call this - dealing with Texas being stupid advice?

    I had a phone interview for healthcare through the state at 11:30 this morning (they didn't call me until 1:10 or so but different story). Woman asks me all the normal questions - then asks if I'm caring for a child. I'm like no? And she starts in on how well if I don't have a child then why did I fill out this application and I'm trying to get her to listen to me and keep telling her no I filled out the application on yourtexasbenfits for healthcare for adult not caring for a child. She tells me no such things exists. I start crying, asking then why is their an option on the website, why does parkland tell me I have to go through the texasbenfits website - she calls me hysterical and starts telling me stuff I can't even understand anymore because all it sounds like is nose. I say thank you hang up and cry into my pillow for a while.

    It probably didn't help that I was exhausted for insomnia and I fucked up sleep scheduled.

    Now, because I wanted to prove to myself I wasn't crazy I went back to the website:

    I don't know where to go from here. Do I fill it out again (I'm scared to fill out the person who has a disability part because this pop up comes up and tells me my estate would have to pay it back? And I don't understand what that means?)? Do I call 211 and ask them if I should fill it out again? Do I wait until I get a case worker when I finally can do intake at one of the northstar clinics? Should I even bother complaining about how I was treated on the phone and the lateness of the call?

    I was so happy the I was getting this accomplished and now I'm back to square one. Part of me is very tempted to just go hysterical meltdown on my mother over healthcare until she at least agrees to let me go back to the dentist.

    Sorry if this is the wrong place for this or if I'm making too many threads. Please hit with me a boundary stick if need be.

    Your "estate" is your property after death. So don't worry about that.

    Oh! So anyone that survived me would have to pay the government back out of anything I might have left? Sorry if these are dumb questions.

    I think that's "if they conclude that you were cheating and they want to get paid back" or something? I'm not sure, but I think it's a non-issue since so far as I know you're legitimately disabled.

    Well, I've applied again this time for the disability healthcare too. Even screen shooed what the system said I applyed for, not that it'll help if it's sending the wrong form to them.

    Well, now you have a thing you can show them if they ask about the child.

    I just checked the pdf they give you of what you 'digitally filled out' ....and it says "medicaid for person with child'. I'm going to call 211 tomorrow and just I don't even know cry at them. I'm so frustrated.

    this sucks, i hope you get it worked out! there are actually a few laws already set in texas that clash with the new bill, and aren't allowing some people to get care if they are below a certain line that's already below the poverty line. i hope everything works out for you though! here's hoping.
