I remember about our state legislative made cut on Medicaid funding so nobody on Medicaid could get CI at all and I asked ENT specialist if Medicaid will cover CI so he said no at all. The private insurance will cover but have to pay huge out of pocket and will have a lot of medical debts. For my insurance, it will cover 60% of cost so have to pay rest of them at 40%.
The insurance companies are getting tighten up and more expensive now.
I don't think ASL will die in anytime.
Well, we shall wait and see... I should remind you something, the cure for deafness is coming up in near future.
