Health Insurance San Diego Ca Question & Answers

Ruth asks…

DISABLED w/ DEPRESSION w/ SDI, MediCare, MediCAl, Section 8-HUD…I want to move from CA to ORE…WHAT 2 DO?

I suffer from severe, chronic Depression and have been disabled for 14 years. I have lived alone in the same apartment for all 14 years and have been on Section 8 Housing Assistance, HUD, for 13 years. I receive both state MediCal and Federal MediCare Health insurance and I am a US Navy Veteran (not disabled w/ military and rarely use their services).

My depression has stayed more or less the same all these years and I feel that a change from the monotonous environment and weather would help. I have also been suffering from high blood pressure, a low immune system and menopause and can’t stand the heat. I’m miserable and am unable to exert myself in these warm conditions.

I live in San Diego, CA and want to move somewhere around the Portland, OR area. I lived there until I was 19 and loved the area. I think an environment that has a change of seasons with both rain and snow and lots of green scenery would be better for me than the present day in, day out, sunny and too hot, concrete jungle I have lived in for too many years.

I don’t have a car…figured I’d U-haul it up there…and buy a car in Oregon where they don’t have a state tax…So I would have to save for truck rental, gas, rent and deposit, and maybe the car…this will take me at least two years…

I have contacted some agencies in Oregon and in San Diego by phone and by email…but I am not getting anywhere in finding out how to transition between the two states…My depression is telling me to just give up…but… then I found this website…Sooooooo….

HERE ARE MY QUESTIONS…???

I would need to save money for the move…How do I save the money without having to claim it as an asset on my yearly evaluation forms for Section 8 and MediCal?
I need to transfer my Section 8 housing and find a
residence…before I moved…How do I do this?

If I saved $2,000.00 the first year and had $4,000.00 in two years for the move…Would this amount of “liquid assets” be detrimental to ANY of the monetary or service benefits I now receive?

I would need state or federal Health Insurance in Oregon…does MediCal and MediCare transfer? or Do I have to be re-evaluated after I move there.

I would need to transfer my Social Security Disability payments…OR…WOULD I HAVE TO BE RE-EVALUATED IN OREGON…to continue receiving SDI?

WHAT ELSE would I NEED TO DO?

Is there a SOCIAL or STATE or ADVOCATE AGENCY that could HELP ME arrange all these changes and help me make a smooth transition?

I’d be thankful for any feedback…it would be one step of progress made on this slow journey..
GREATLY APPRECIATED
Namaste’

You want a lot of advice for such a short answer block. My suggestion is to PRAY!

You need to get with the program and get a J-O-B, and then when you are busy working, I bet you wont have time to be so depressed.
