What should I do if my parents wont pay for my medication and I have no income of my own?

Depends: It depends on how old you are--if an adult, options are limited. You may need to go to the county's health dept clinic-they can help you get your meds. You should also let your dr know-samples or cheaper alternatives (like the walmart $4 rx list) sometimes an option. ...Read more

Can I be qualified for medi-cal, im 26 f dependent of a low income family. A full time student w/ no job. My parents help supply sometimes. In cali.?

CA = State of flux: The scotus support of the individual mandate states that people must have health insurance. It does not state how they pay for it, however. California, illinois and other states are in financial crisis. The rules for eligibility might change, but it is worth the effort to go onto the medical site and inquire. Even if they are not eligible, people might be told by state employees about resources. ...Read more

Eligibility : There are many people who qualify for medical, but have no idea how to apply. I suggest starting with contacting a federally qualified health center (it'll take some google work to find one in your area). These health centers have financial counselors and other staff to determine your exact eligibility for medical and help you get registered and set up with a primary care doc. Good luck! ...Read more

Can two short parents have an average height child?

Can two short parents have an average height child?

Possible: The expected height of kids would be average parental height + 2.5 inch for boys and -2.5in for girls. If either or both parents have genetic material on board from their families that should have made them taller, there is some chance that a taller child could be produced. Often the eventual stature of kids can be predicted in mid childhood using their bone maturity and pattern of growth. ...Read more

I am 25 and about to fall off my parents insurance. Health conditions are preventing me from working right now. I cant pay for my own plan. Options?

Medicaid: If you are low-income you will likely qualify for Medicaid. Because Medicaid reimburses doctors at a very low rate few doctors participate and those who do generally can only spend a few minutes per visit so they do not lose money, but it is better than nothing. See https://www.healthcare.gov/medicaid-chip/getting-medicaid-chip/ to see if you qualify and how to obtain coverage. ...Read more

I am 12 weeks pregnant just found out and I cant have this baby I live under my parents roof and im going to college also I don't have money to pay for the abortion what do I do....

I am 12 weeks pregnant just found out and I cant have this baby I live under my parents roof and im going to college also I don't have money to pay for the abortion what do I do....

What to do with baby: Babies have been born during wars and famines, so we don't want to just get rid of a baby fetus for not too big of a reason. For cases of rape or incest, abortion is an option. For normal babies in normal pregnancies, 2 parents are better than one (that means getting married, finishing school with financial aid, getting a job with health insurance, and creating a happy family). Always plan ahead! ...Read more

Is it legal for a parent to slap his child in the u.S.?

Is it legal for a parent to slap his child in the u.S.?

Yes but: Each culture defines what its usual forms of acceptable parenting include. Within the American culture, you may be carted off to jail for child endangerment if your neighbor reports this kind of "parenting". Less so if you slapped the kids rear end, but you cross the wrong taboo here and you will need a lawyer. ...Read more
