I'm just being a salty bitch feel free 2 disregard
OH YEAH i just remembered we went in person to turn in some papers for medicaid because we have a weird situation and this exchange happened
Caseworker: "How long have you been a teaching assistant?"
Me: "About two and a half years."
Caseworker: "You should be done with that by now."
Me: "....Actually, I still have a few years left in my program."
like excuse me???? why would you even say something like that?????? would you say that to anyone else? "I've been a cashier for three years." "You should be done with that by now." Like what the everloving fuck?
Spoiler: Sorry but ive reached a breaking point
oh my god could you just get over the shipping thing, or do triads, or other poly ships, I'm so tired of hearing about this in like three separate threads
New avatar, new me (but it's still Marcille because she is my Brand©)
All I want in life is a good anime adaptation of dungeon meshi
fuck this insurance
Fuck the pharmacy
Fuck """healthcare""" in this shitty worthless country
Bcbsil can suck a dick
On a different note I still really love that famcytier Jade.... I wish I could capture that style again but for the moment it seems to have been a one-off kinda thing
What I loved about Rose Buddies: Rachel and Griffin telling me a story but it's so low-stakes that it's fine if I miss something. Also funny.
Wonderful is great, but I do miss the pointless narrative of reality tv as relayed to me by them
Wow I want to die
Healthcare is great* until you're chronically ill and need a specialty drug and then you're SOL unless you get the perfect ((expensive)) plan that works with a pharmacy that does copay matching to reduce your costs
I literally don't know if I'm going to be able to continue taking my drug
*lol no but at least it covers some stuff
The pharmacy was not just useless but actively harmful, because when I asked about what Medicaid plans they accepted the person a) gave me no information and b) told me she didn't think any of them covered my drug
Okay. A bunch of people are on Medicaid and some of them must need to take it and they have to be able to get help for it
Right? They cover like hospitalizations and surgery and a bunch of other shit, it would be insane if they didn't also cover specialty medication at least to some extent
But of course I can find 0 info on this anywhere because specialty medication is an arcane secret you're not allowed to know until you call 5 different people and sacrifice your firstborn child
Different tone: eating butter after not eating butter for a long time is a triiiiip
everything sucks but at least my recipe was accepted by the university's first cookbook
i get a five dollar gift card
HOLY FUCKING SHIT
OKAY SO I MAY HAVE TO COMPLETELY PAY FOR IT FOR THIS FIRST MONTH BECAUSE WE SIGNED UP FOR A MARKETPLACE PLAN IN CASE WE DIDN'T GET APPROVED
holy fucking shit holy shit
timeline of events:
asked pharmacy for assurance that i could continue getting the drug there for the greatly reduced cost. they said yes as long as it was a bcbsil plan
chose a plan (bcbsil)
cocurrently with 2: tried to find out stuff about medicaid, asked a bunch of questions, got most shit answered, they told us it could take up to 60 days to get approved (and intimated it was likely to take that long)
applied for medicaid
got approved for medicaid like. december 29th or something. very shortly after we applied.
found out that i could not get my drug through my usual service because of my new plan
called new service, found out my plan does not cover anything before deductible, found out there's no financial aid through them, they told me to call the company to get help
called the company, activated my savings card, BUT! savings card has limits, and does not work with medicaid
called medicaid enrollment services, tried to figure out what's happening, person on the phone said nothing until feb 1st, even though on our notice it says we had medicaid from october through january
called a second medicaid service, they said yes i do have medicaid right now, but it's secondary because i also have marketplace
and it doesn't cover deductible
looked into canceling marketplace, found the soonest you can is 14 days from when you apply to
so. the situation is
i can't use the savings card because i currently do have medicaid benefits BUT they don't help me pay for my drug currently because they don't help pay deductibles AND my shit marketplace plan doesn't offer any coverage until after deductible is paid. I can cancel my insurance now but it won't actually be cancelled until two weeks from now and i need a dose on saturday the 20th.
because we tried to be careful, because the pharmacy assured me it would be fine, we're fucked.
the only potential hope is that i can get a free "sample" to tide me over (my doctor has procured those for me before, way back last year at the beginning when things were up in the air) or that maybe the company can help out some other way besides the card.
i should just die
(general statement: planning on not dying but having a lot of suicidal ideation due to all of this)
Re: all the shit above, I was on the phone for hours and if everything works I should only be paying 3.90 for it
* picks up all medical stuff, sets metaphorically aside *
Okay so my fursona is like the most fucking basic calico cat fursona. She has a notch out of one ear and probably sharpens her claws on innapropriate surfaces
I'm so happy to hear that!!
