My sister sent me an email with answers to some of my questions from yesterday:
[…] Mom needed to be eligible for Social Security Disability to be eligible for Medicaid. They are separate, but somehow one predicates the other.
ChamberlinEdmonds is the company that works through Halifax to assist people in getting Medicaid because the process is so f-ing insane. Chamberlin helps with the process so long as the person is in the hospital. Once Mom went into Coastal, Coastal was supposed to continue the process. I suppose that once Mom went back to Halifax, Chamberlin picked it back up. Then Woodland was supposed to be working on it. I really don’t understand why Chamberlin came back into the picture, but I did see that on the FL DCFS site (Medicaid) that Chamberlin was continuing to receive information letters. I suppose because they have a vested interest in Mom getting the aid because it will give Halifax money. I just called and left Debbie a message asking her to call me back. If you would prefer to call her, her number is [redacted].
And then she sent another email to me at 11:03 PM to say:
Debbie Meadows said she would be happy to answer any of your questions. Her email address is: [redacted]
Her voicemail message asks for the name of the hospital in which the case was opened along with the social security number. I suppose you might want to include those in your email for her to reference.
