I received a notice from Camp Medicaid late last week that my so-called “Fair Hearing” (filed 12/16/10) is scheduled for the afternoon of May 3, 2011. I cannot make it for various reasons, but also cannot get through on the phone number the form directs me to call to request an adjournment to another day/time.
In the past, oh, seven months since I reapplied for Medicaid when the Roosevelt breast clinic refused to see me b/c my Medicaid lapsed, I have not been able to get a follow-up breast exam or mammogram to make sure that everything from my breast biopsy is okay. This is the NYC public “assistance” at work, folks. The so-called social safety net.
