I applied for In Home Health Support Services. My mom is on SSI and has Medicare. They said she qualified for Medi-Cal also. So far I applied in August and it is now approaching October. How long does it usually take? I know there are government cuts etc. but just wondering why they never return calls or give status. Is this typical? The Medi-Cal worker said she just had to enter my mom's final paperwork into the system and that I would get a call from the Social Worker who will come out and give an assessment of my mom's medical condition. Mom requires 24 hour care. I am just getting antzy because we really need some help. Thanks for any comments.
I didn't know my mom could qualify for Medicare/Medi-Cal at the same time but it appears that you can do that without giving up Medicare altogether.
