No 629-0967. As for financing the Home a building and loan institution can help you medicaid payments y i want some information right away. I am on medicaid. I was in the Hospital and medicaid gave me stickers and i gave the Hospital one. Now about 12 months after i got a Bill. I owe the Bill. I thought if medicaid gave stickers they were supposed to pay it off. H. A Ronny Money division supervisor of the social services department has provided this explanation there Are two kinds of medicaid recipients. In one situation a person s income May be below the medicaid scale which allows Hun to receive medical labels for medical services immediately in another kind of situation a person s income May be Over the medicaid scale this person will have what we Call a spend Down it Means that he will have to spend his Money Down to the medicaid scale before he can receive labels. For example the medicaid scale for one person for a six months period is $850 if a person s income is $900 for that same six months period then he must spend $50 of his own Money before he will be Given labels to take care of any medical Bills. There is another aspect to the medicaid problem which would cause someone to have to pay even though they receive medical labels vendors of the medicaid program such As hospitals have agreed to accept the medicaid payment As payment in full. However medicaid will generally pay Only for a Ward room rate of a patient decides he wants a private room in a Hospital then medicaid will pay for the Ward rate leaving the difference to be paid by the patient. In your Case said Money you did have a spend Down when you went into the Hospital and therefore had to pay some of your own Money towards the Bill.
