Pennies from heaven?

I had a routine ladyparts exam a few months ago. It qualified as "preventive care" and I didn't have to pay a copay. (Yay! Thank you, ACA!) I got a rundown of what they charged my insurance a month or two ago -- one of those THIS IS NOT A BILL things -- and promptly lost/forgot about it, since I owed nothing. Today I got a check, made out to me, from the doctor's office for a couple hundred bucks. Do I get to keep it? [more inside]

Please hope me, President Obama

NoInsuranceFilter: I awoke New Years Day in the hospital. My clothes had been cut off, I had a catheter in and a wrist restraint on my left wrist. I had five stitches in my eyebrow. The bill has arrived. [more inside]

housing old folks

My question has to do with MediCal (which terminology doesn't show up as other than "medical" when I search tags.) So. My mother is applying for MediCal for her 90-year-old mother. The problem seems to be that until MediCal comes through, my mother will have to pay for a nursing home. Which luckily enough she can do, but: will she actually be reimbursed by MediCal? And how long will that take? I'd appreciate hearing others' experience in this really murky area.
