Share of cost is part of Medicaid. It's for low income adults. You don't have to be disabled either. Every month you have to reach a certain amount in medical bills according to your income and then you are eligible for Medicaid for that month. Alot of states only offer Medicaid to the disabled, elderly, children or pregnant women. There are a select few that offer it to low income adults. Hope this explains it better.

OK....no I never heard of that. In PA you can be a normal adult but have less than $3,000 in negotible assets (doesn't include house, car etc) and be very low income to get medical assistance but either you get it or you don't, it isn't month to month or dependent on your medical bills if any. If you have no income it is free but if you are low income you pay somthing in premiums on a sliding scale depending on your income.

In April of 2011 I had a baby boy by way of c-section I had some serious complications almost died. In order to save my life the doctor had to give me an ileostomy that is reversible in 3 months at that time I had full medicaid. I no longer have full medicaid now I have share of cost and now the doctors have scheduled me for the surgery am worried. Will the share of cost pay for my surgery or will I have to come out of pocket to prior to surgery or would I be billed later?

As stated in my previous email am scheduled for surgery as of next week and I have share of cost also I am on unemployment benefits my share of cost is $818.00 per month am concerned that the surgery will not be preformed because of the coverage I have. I just want to know what are my options or will the hospital preform the surgery and bill me later or will I have to come out of pocket prior to surgery? Also is any helpline that I can call or even get emergency medicaid to cover this surgery because my illness is a preexsiting condition from the c-section I had in April of 2011?

Default Share of cost

Hi here is my dilema I had a c-section in April of 2011 there was alot of complications the doctors had to operate for the 2nd time to save my life I ended up with an ileostomy. This ileostomy would be reversible in 3 months however it was delayed. I had full medicaid until August 31,2011 then it was changed to share of cost. Now am scheduled for surgery as of next week for the reversal. My concern is that my share of cost is $818.00 per month am worried that the surgery may not take place because of the insurance I have. My question is will I have to come out of pocket prior to surgery or will the surgery take place and I will be billed what are my options?
