No programs available for people in their 50's who all of sudden have health issues.
Also unable to work and lose their health insurance. I was diagnose with breast cancer 6 years ago and the mean time I have developed multiple serious health issues. My husband recently was diagnose with prostate cancer that has spread to the bones. We both have been unable to work since May and June of last year. We could no longer pay our health insurance has we have no income coming in. We both have filed for disability but that is a long process. Mine is at the hearing process. Meanwhile, we still have medication and we need medical treatment, bills to be paid, etc.. Medicaid says we don't qualify. Obamacare says we don't qualify because of no income. Our family is in a critical situation. I have medicine that is needing to be refilled and doctor appointments, mri's and ekg's I have missed. Now my husband is in the same situation as myself. A bad situation has worsen, and we need help. We both have been working since we were 18 years old. My husband is 55 and I am 53. We are swept under the rug through the system.
