My biggest obstacle in life that is and has always been is my health insurance (I am on both Medicare and Medicaid). I am currently 21 years old from North Carolina and have been on SSI for years. One of my life goals Iíve had since forever is to go to UCLA. I am only receiving around $600 a month, which is nothing. I am the daughter of a single mother; all of my money generally goes to her for bills, leaving me with nothing. So hereís where the problem comes inÖ If I ever were to get a job, thatís if I can even get a job, I would completely lose my SSI, my medication is extremely expensive and runs around $13,000 a month. Iím being forced to choose between living in my bedroom with my mother for the rest of my life but being in good health or actually having a life but with poor deteriorating health without health my medication. I feel I lose either way. I obviously cannot continue living my life like this. I feel like a vegetable and Iím extremely depressed. Thereís so much I want to do with my life, but this has been hindering me for so longÖIf anyone has any suggestions as to what to do, please leave them here.

Since this question is a couple of months old the information on this page may be too little or too late.

SSI Spotlight on Continued Medicaid Eligibility
for People Who Work

What will happen to my Medicaid if I go to work? In most cases, if you are blind or disabled, regardless of age, and you have Medicaid before you go to work, your Medicaid will continue while you are working as long as your disabling condition still exists.
