What's on Second! Well, you may know the old Baseball parody. But all of us know in some way how Medical Coverage, or lack of, is a part of our daily lives.
We got a letter from the State (CA) saying my Wife's most recent app. for State Medi-cal was referred to a Disability Determination Service Division within the state that "help determine if California residents are eligible for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA)", a Federal Program.
The letter also states that "Federal law requires that eligibility be determined within 90 days, except where unusual circumstances exist. In your case, that is the situation".
The letter goes on to say among other baffling things that… all the needed info has not yet been received…final review of your case is pending…it is not necessary to respond to this letter. And that it will be "reported back to the County level".
This letter came about two day's after another, new App. for SSI had been done online. We were also contacted the day after the Letter from someone at our local SSI Office.
Now I am one that can appreciate 'good' technology, even on the Web, but I also know because I have seen government workings BEFORE technology for the most part, other than punch cards etc. and 'it', never moves in this way.
Voice Mail has produced no results. Has anyone had any specific experience like this in the state of CA? Or in my case right now, the state of Confusion.
