Hi, I am caring for my husband who has ALS and have been told or asked by different people if I was getting paid by the state for caring for him. We live in Michigan and have recently applied for state assistance. Our adult medicaid program is currently closed so, I can't get covered but, my husband was approved with a spend down of 1017.00/mon. Our son was approved with total coverage, no spend down. Things are so screwy, different income limits for all of the programs. Food assistance is still pending. My caseworker said that caring for your spouse is just part of the package and you don't get paid to do it. If not, then why am I getting asked about it so often? Are things different in other states? Thanks for any information you may have on this matter.
