Veteran Marine Forced To Move Due To Medicaid Regulations

Posted: Updated:
Bordentown, New Jersey (My9NJ) - $50 and Medicaid regulations are what are standing between James Bradbury and the critical care he needs for his rare disease.

James suffers from cadasil, a physical and mental degenerative disease, and his wife Ronnie has tried every avenue to help him get the care he needs.

“He finally feels safe and secure. This is the first time in 14 years that he’s felt this and now they, just because of a few dollars want to take it away from him,” she explained.

Now because of the social security cost-of-living increase of 1.5%, in the eyes of Medicaid, the Marine veteran is $50 over the limit for the care he is getting at his specialized nursing home and he’s being forced to relocate to a standard nursing home which is actually more expensive, but Medicaid approved.

Unfortunately, James’ nurses are concerned that this could be a life threatening move. Not only will he no longer be receiving specialized care, but James has grown accustomed to his previous home, even taking up creative activities like art which is displayed around the facility.

Ronnie Bradbury promises to continue to do what she can to make this right.

“I’m going to fight this, there’s nothing else that I can do but this is my husband’s life,” she explained.
