I have seven eighths of a smile now. Still dribble cup if i am not careful. BP is still high but way lower than it was.
The BP meds still have me wobbly. Got my insurance straigtened out. I am going in to the clinic to get assigned a doc on Monday. They were formerly the free clinics here in San Diego and are still a non profit. The reason I chose them was they are and have been fedrally funded since the forties. And have a huge list of awards.
I used them when I lived up on the mountain and they always worked on a sliding scale. So when I move back home I wont have to change health clinic provider just docs.
I am going through Covered California which is its own version of Obamas Affordable health care act. California has always had health care on an emergency basis for people in need. The Medi-Cal system was designed for Women and childeren who are on Welfare. When he affordable healht care act came down it was a matter of expanding that Medi-Cal system to cover those of us who dont fit in any category with the exception of income.
I fit that income category. And will fit that income till I start collecting social security. In which case I will be going with MediCare which is accepted by this clinic as well. Retirement here for me because I am a baby boomer can be as early as 62. But the longer I can wait the more income I will receive about 1300 ish a month if I retire at 62 if I can wait till I am Seventy it will be 2500 ish a month.
So I will be 61 in June... I need to talk to a financial person to find out my best rout. there are some advantages to taking it early.
Look into it. I read an article that said you needed to go onto medicare at 65 even if you do not start social security--some kind of penalty if you do not.
Yep even though I can take Social Security at 62 Medicare is 65.... no matter what. Medicare doesnt cover everything so you have to have something to supplement that. I am investigating if MediCal can fill that bill.
