  •  I don't know if AZ is the same as NM, (2+ / 0-)

    but it seems to me the letter you got is inappropriate. In NM, there are several different categories of Medicaid. One is attached to TANF. I'm assuming that the letter was saying that you weren't eligible for TANF (TANF is for the care of children), which makes no sense to someone who applied for Medicaid. Under the ACA, Medicaid will be available to anyone who meets the financial guidelines (if AZ accepts it). In the meantime, perhaps you can find a clinic in your area. If it's determined that you need surgery, the doctor has an obligation to make sure that you get it. I don't think you should wait until your cyst(s) cause serious harm. Please get on the phone and keep asking until you find someone who says "yes." I'll keep you in my thoughts.
