The funds will be used to help with medical needs

I lost my job and health benefits in August 2011. I am a diabetic and on insulin 2 types, and oral meds too.  I  get my insulins through the manufacturer which is great if I couldn't get their help with my insulins it would be well over $450 a month.  I have no medical insurance at all and I have to wait 2 years before I get Medicare.  I can't get Medicaid because of the Social Security Disability amount I get you can't make more than $789 monthly.  Services you get through Social Services are not a whole lot it really does not help those of us who really need it.  I am married but my husband supports me in no way he also lives on SS disability (he gets Medicare) but I have to count his income on services which puts us over the income level with Social Services. Vehicles, at least here in VA are not counted as a resource through Social Services they said it is not something you need, but how do you get to the doctor appointments or get groceries so I am in a real catch 22.  It makes me mad that I have to ask for help but I have no choice if I want to continue to live life.
