Forgotten seniors ineligible for Medicaid.
We are seniors who worked our "productive" lives paying into Social Security and taxes and earned too much to be eligible for Medicaid but not enough money to live after rent. Yes Medicare pays 80 percent of our medical bills but none for dental, eye care, hearing care, home care help, transportation to doctors appointments, grocery shopping, food stamps, help around the "home" and other benefits paid for by the state for those who didn't work or are supporting many children without working,'or people who come from other countries and never contributed to or very little into the system who are eligible for all the benefits listed above. My $700 after rent ( public housing) must be enough to pay for food, medicine, utilities, personal hygiene needs, clothing, transportation, and other living expenses. I would have to pay more than $100 per month or more deducted from my Social Security for Medicade home help. (I am 72 years old and in poor health. ) "Golden Years", I don't think so.
