When Albuquerque parent Robert Anderson went to pick up a prescription last week, he learned that as of Dec. 31, his four children who were adopted out of foster care were no longer eligible for Medicaid.
“We’re in the middle of a big medical procedure, and I’m saving my receipts to try to get reimbursed later,” Anderson told the Journal. “How long can we do this? How long is it going to take?”
Anderson said that although he and his wife could cover the expenses out of pocket for a short period of time, it would quickly become a financial problem “of staggering size” for his family.
