Husband approved for disability on 10/2009, no health coverage provided for two years, apply for medical card. Medical card approved February 2010, before the state of Kansas will cover any health expenses, he has to pay spend-down amount of 9,129.00. He receives 1006.00 per month from disability, I receive 260.00 weekly for unemployment benefits, I have only 12 weeks left. He was put on disability primarily for bipolar, however, he is COPD with emphysema and will soon require oxygen, has 5 stints in his heart and two blown discs in his neck that require surgery. He was to have this surgery two years ago, but, couldn't take the time off work. I was laid off in 4/09, he was laid off in 7/09. He can't get any of his medicine, see any of his doctors or have any procedures completed. He lays in bed most of time as he can't breath very well. If I appeal, what are my chances? He makes total disability per year is 12,072.00, how do we pay 9,129.00 so he can get the medical attention he needs? He says we need to get a divorce so they won't count my income that runs out end of May. Any thoughts or suggestions would help. Thank you everyone!
