My mom had surgery in February. During that time she had HealthSource Insurance but not Medicaid yet. It's 2 different insurances but they go together, just in case 1 works and the other doesn't.
Anyways, her HealthSource insurance is not free. She pays $130 per month for insurance. But now that she has Medicaid , why does she even have to pay? If Medicaid covers everything? Now that she does have Medicaid , can she use that to cover her past bills ? Does it matter that her surgery happened during the time when she didn't have her Medicaid yet?
Also, I personally had a past bill. They sent me a MEDICAID and it paid my past bill. Why can't they pay for my momes?
