    forgive my ignorance, but I have no one else to ask about this.

    I am attempting to get a medical card as I have sever issues that i can not afford to get taken care of myself, infact, it is actually life threatening and getting worse.

    Never the less, I was denied and now have to get a lawyer, I already filed the appeal myself.
    So I google for a lawyer and decided to pick the top one "[FONT=&quot]Bill Gordon and Associates"[/FONT]
    I call them and they said they would e-mail me a form which I am to print out, sign, then fax back, rather then use snail mail, "my idea btw"

    So it took them 8 days to finally email me this form, the woman told me on the phone she would sent it asap, then they called me back to confirm my email first, :facepalm:

    as I write this I now figure, they obviously suck ass.

    So, how does one find a trusty lawyer?

    This is important as my life is actually at the hands of them. :(

    Do you make too much money? On any other kind of public assistance?

    Go to your states Dept. of Human Resources. A good case worker should be able to help you. With no income how do you expect to pay your attorney?

    Thanks for the info, checking it out.

    As for paying for a lawyer, when it comes to things such as medicaid, you dont pay them, the state or whoever it is pays them if you win, and if you loose, they dont get shyt I guess.
    But hey have no problem with this I also guess.
    IDK maybe they get paid either or by the state.

    But yah, I only get one shot at this, then I have to start over again or w/e.

    Never the less though, eventually I will have to go to the emergency room, if I dont get a doctor to operate.
    No lie, I have been there a few times now and they dont even look at my issue, they just refer me to a specialist that wont see me w/o insurance or cash.
    The emergency room knows full well that once it becomes a more serious issue then it is now, they will have to do something, they cant let you die, but until that happens, I am SOL.

    Sorry for ranting on and on, its hell being alone in this world, living in a van using mcdonalds free wifi to survive :(

    BTW on a bright side, they let me use my own coffee pot, inside mcdonalds ,lmfao
