Ok, I need to vent. I just need to let it all out. Our government is worthless.

I got another rejection letter today after my first appeal for CHIP benefits. I was furious because I have spent hours on phone calls with them over the past 2 weeks trying to get this settled. So I called again today and asked why I was once again rejected. Here is what I was told...

Because we make $10 over the max limit for our family size. I then asked her if they even looked at how much I pay in childcare (this get's deducted from your income and makes it lower). She said, "Oh you pay childcare?" Well YES!! It is on the application. "Oh, yeah I see it now. I do not understand why they did not notice that. Did you submit proof of childcare?" You CANNOT submit proof of childcare with the original application. It has to be requested, and it never was. "Oh, I do see that they never requested that. How weird. I am showing that based on all your information that you DO qualify. You will have to reapply again." WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!? I have already reapplied twice because yall keep screwing up! If your people ACTUALLY did their job and did not skim over their work, we would not have this problem would we?!? "Well you are 100% correct in thinking that mam. Just submit a 2nd letter explaining everything you just told me, and go ahead and send in that proof of childcare. Oh, wait, I also see here that you sent in your appeal over the 30 day time limit." How is that even possible if I just applied 2 weeks ago!?!? Can you check the dates on the letter??? "Oh yes, you are right again. I wonder why they put that as another reason for rejection???"

Kill me people. Kill me now! With my hormones all over the place, I might just beat my head against the wall.

End rant..... This stress cannot be good for me.

Sad part is, is that back in Las Vegas I worked for the County. I went out of my way to help people while there were quite a few who could care less. They had a rock hard union contract to protect them from anything. It is just sad that these entities do not do something about lack luster job performance.

(((hugs))) I went through the same thing... In the end you will forget all about this and be happy that you are getting the care for your baby. Right now it is just extremely stressful!

Wow....that is really frustrating. I don't understand that **** sometimes. I hope they do their job once they receive your letter and proof of child care!

I'm so sorry you are dealing with this. I have to deal with insurance companies, both government (Medicaid/Medicare) and private, at work, and they are all a pain to deal with.
