In the next couple weeks I will be receiving a check for $8100 from a car accident settlement. (I was ran over in the crosswalk while on my motorized chair) The full amount was $15,000 after lawyer fees and paying back MediCare and Medi-Cal for the hospital bills, $8100 is what I am getting. I am on SSDI and if I understand correctly, my benefits will not be affected because they are based on past earnings. What I am concerned about is Medi-Cal being affected long term because of the money. I have several health issues and without Medi-Cal for a period of time, that money will be gone quick!
