I am 67 years old and receive a social security check of 776 dollars a month. I have no assets. My rent is 350 a month and my electric is 78 dollars a month. . I was sent a QMB card , but not full medicaid. I want to know why .
Believe it or not, Georgia has 36 different types of Medicaid. You actually did receive a form of Medicaid: Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB) Medicaid. This type of Medicaid pays for your Medicare premiums, your Medicare co-insurance and deductibles, and your prescription drugs.
If you feel you qualify for a different type of Medicaid, you may want to contact your local Area Agency on Aging or the Georgia Legal Senior Hotline at 1-888-257-9519.

There can be many different reasons as to why you were not granted the medicaid benefits you think you're entitled to. Without having more information regarding your specific situation, it is hard for any attorney on this site to respond to you. I would contact an elder law attorney or one that practices insurance law to see if they will provide you with a consultation to discuss your issue in greater detail, with the provision of more facts. You should be able to find an attorney on this site in your area, or close to your area, to see if they will meet with you. Medicaid benefits can be tricky, so proper counsel is warranted in this case. Good luck to you.
