4. Financing Children’s Medical Conditions

In this mini-episode, Jessica discusses paying for treatments for the medical conditions of her children and the lack of public/government funding to assist with the incredible expense. She talks about how expensive it can be, even with insurance, and reflects on applying for things such as SSDI, to the DDA, DSS, LISS, and the autism waiver.
