I have just recently applied and had an application with the State of NC Legal Aid assist me with my recent NC Adult Medicaid application. I applied in late March. They have not disclosed what basis they made their decision but rather use the generic response and link in the Medicaid Manual. My disabled spouse went thru the hoops even after proving from his Pulmonary Specialist with a letter that he could no longer work or was employable due to his lung capacity of 40% in both lungs along with many other medical issues that required him to be on 17 medications.
I am now in the process of requesting my own records from over (8) providers including my RX printout from Walgreens. It is a shame how much the markup is for generic medicaitons. If we just had to pay for mine my husband's check would be gone. He is finally on both Medicare and Medicaid. If anyone has anymore proactive ways to deal with this hearing which I do not have a date for yet please let me know.
