I live with Parksinons and now 3 years retired on a disability allowance and small pension. I am resident in Brooklyn NYC. I am single and own no property. I am still able to care for myself but my copayments (my insurance is with BlueCross) come to almost 1/3rd of my available income. I recently started on medicare which has further reduced by living income. A local Eldercare lawyer is proposing a $6k fee to help my eligibility for Medicade. Isn't this excessive? How do I explore my options in an informed way?
