Well, hubby got the pink slip...one by one, the companies contracted by CAT and CAT themselves are cutting back 25,000 jobs globe wide. He had this job for two years and he enjoyed it and the good health benefits. We lived the good life for that time and now time for us to go back where we originally did. I hate to give up my health insurance but no way we can afford COBRA so we will have to go back on Medicaid once again and our primary doctor does not accept Medicaid patients. We are in family counseling which it is not payable under the Medicaid so that would affect the family dynamics and I don't know if Medicaid will pay for daughters ADD medications (they rejected earlier and it was tough paying over 140 dollars for a 30 day supply of meds). Glad daughter is not in school, private school right now for the summer. CAT is having a ripple effect across the Illinois state......we will survive!
