Since the last post there have been somethings that seem to be going for us. One of our concerns was the fact that Edgar had no medical insurance and the first time that we took him to the Dr the bill was over $200 just for a checkup. After several hours on the phone and filling out lots of paperwork we finally figured out how to get Medi-Cal for Edgar. After going around and around with the Medi-Cal people i called them and asked them why they needed Juan and my financial information when we really had nothing to do with if they were going to give him the coverage or not. The lady on the phone questioned me and said “So you do not want insurance for you and Juan?” I told her no and then the light finally clicked for these people and they sent me in the right direction. The lady on the phone told me that I was requesting to be a “Needy Caregiver” which in turn is someone that is a guardian of a child but is unable to add them to their insurance policy at any given time. In most cases this is for relatives that are taking care of family members such as we are. A week later Little Edgar was on his way and he had Medi-Cal. This was such a relief and i am glad that this was finally taken care of.
No surprise that we are still waiting for the social worker to do our home study as they agreed to help us out. I have contacted her and told her that we now have Medi-Cal and we are just waiting on her. Our fingers are crossed and we hope to hear from her in the next couple of weeks.
It has been a month since we terminated our needs for our Lawyer. We have since received a itemized statement of the charges that they billed us for and I am shocked. Just for the little work that they did it still cost us $1500. The other thing is that it has been a month and we have not seen out remainder of our money. I think that this is sort of weird but i am sure that there is a reason.
I have been trying to add to this site and make it a better experience for all of us and I hope that you are enjoying it. If there are any comments or concerns please let me know so that I can correct it.
