State Hospital Debt
« on: September 18, 2013 06:12:23 PM »
New guy on the block.
If there is a better category, advise.

Been outa work a while, I am being sued and defending ProSe. 
The State a.a.g. tried to bag me with a summons and default judgement,
but I had the *temerity* to Notice with Appearance..

If one qualified for both financial Aid and Medicaid is there anything that precludes using both, which would have left the patient with less of a burden?

Medicaid covers dates   06/01- 06/15 (100%)   approved end of June.
State Aid covers dates  05/27 - 06/15 (80% )   approved mid Aug.

Hospital waited until August, charges off entire bill to State aid leaving me ~$4k
If state aid was used only for 5/27 - 5/31  it would have been significantly less.

I started getting excuses about 'splitting fees, policy, state law, rules...
Medicaid typically get a 40% discount of the top, I have the itemized bill - it has enough hot air to float a balloon with a crew of four.
