My mom receives a little over $1,500 a month from Social Security disability. Her medical bills and prescription drug costs are roughly $800 right now doing the bare minimum. Her heart doctor needs to run more tests to figure out why her blood pressure is staying in such a dangerous range but we can not afford to pay what Medicare won't cover. She has a Medicare replacement plan through United Healthcare and they cover only about 50% of her drug costs and have high co pays for doctors visits. She has thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills and her doctors are threatening to stop treatment if we can not afford to pay. If she received about $200 less in Social Security she would qualify for supplemental Medicaid. I do not know what to do to help her. She is severely depressed and wants to just give up since she is suffering with no medical relief and it's breaking my heart. Is there a way to reduce Social Security payments so that she can qualify for extra assistance? Should she stop receiving Social Security altogether and go completely on Medicaid, Food Stamps, utility assistance, etc...? She just moved in with us since she has no ability to afford rent and medical care together but we can not financially support her. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
