We have 1 T1D child, age 16. For the last yr we have been getting Novolog through their patient assistance program. We were told that they now require a "medicaid denial letter" before they will process the renewal application. This means my son needs to apply for medicaid. Never been through this before so I call DHS and ask what I need to do. I am told that because of the ACA I need to apply with the ACA Market Place. Since we have a private insurance policy that is grandfathered we are VERY LEARY of doing ANYTHING that may change it. Once we make any changes then we are no longer grandfathered and will then be subject to the new health care rules. So here are my questions: Can my son apply without effecting our current policy? If he is accepted does he then have 2 insurance policies? Sigh. Thank you all for any help!
