I take Rebif, medicaid dropped me, help!

  Hello all!  I started the Rebif about 4 or 5 months ago.  I had medicaid which was the only reason I was able to get the Rebif.  Medicaid just droppped me.  They said the 250.00 a month in child support we recieve is too much money to qualify for medicaid. I have 2 kids and they say if a 3 people family recieves more than 188.00 a month than I won't qualify.

I don't work right now, I live with my parents and kids.   I have had my medicaid for the past year with the same exact money coming in.  I went to the Rebif website and they say that if you don't get the Rebif fo3 months then they will help.  :(  I told my neuro about this and she said there is no hospital in my county or dr,s that can help or that do any kind of help for no income individules.  But she said that I can not stop the Rebif no matter what.  I don't want to have to stop the Rebif either.  I've been doing great on it and I will find a way to get it somehow.  I will.  

I'm wondering if any of you know where I can go for help with this, or anything I can do or apply for that will help with my getting perscriptions.  Rebif is very expensive.  I don't know what to do.  This all came out of no where.  

Thanks for any  advice you may have!  This forum has always had great suggestions and comments!

WHAT!

Ok, I do not know the logistics of fighting medicaid, and that could be a time battle.

I'm shocked...

Press on and don't give up..
They must have an appeal process.. if not ask for an appeal..

  I wish I could tell where to turn for help.


take care,
