I live in the America and due to a mistake on my brother’s part, my mother has lost her supplementary Medicaid insurance. We have been unable to reinstate it. Trying for months now. She has been hospitalized and sent home early due to this fact. They did not even want to admit her and we had to threaten the hospital with a lawsuit. She has Medicare, that she pays for, but due the immense medical bills (many hospitalizations for CHF (heart disease) and other things, and a monthly pharmaceutical bill totaling $2,000.00 a month, all funds ran out and now we have no coverage for drugs. But, my question is really this. My brother is now telling me to please pay the drug bill every month. He says he cannot do it. I happen to know that she gave him $80,000 dollars A long time ago to hold for her. She told me this and she was lucid. I am very sure. It was to cover any expenses not covered and final ones. The rest was to go to his grandson. I had no issue with that. Was a bit hurt, but no matter. What is making me very angry right now is that he came to me to pay this bill, which I cannot afford. We are already financially supporting her as much as we can. Hub to retire in July of this year. I wrote to my brother and told him that we are doing our best to help her (I have always been quiet about this as I don’t think one should advertise), but since he is being so quiet abut the money, I finally told him, why not used the $80K she gave you? His answer? Oh, she would hate that. My response: I doubt that in as much as she asked that you do this. You can keep what is left. I don’t care. No response. My mother’s nine year long illness has torn our family apart in many ways. I feel so used and like I don’t understand this brother any longer. Actually there are 3 siblings and since she got ill nine years ago, it has been nothing but trouble. Has anyone suffered from this sort of thing? I know it is different in England as you have NHS. God Bless.
