My daughter was killed in an automobile accident 5 years ago and her father has full custody. Evidently there is a law that requires that in a wrongful death suite both parents are to receive what the parent with full custody decides. I am to receive 10% after the lawyers receive their 30% and $100,000.00 in expenses. So I think I'll be receiving an amount just under 32,000.00. My understanding is that it has to be used for medical expenses.
I need to know if I can prepay the dentist prior to Hep C treatment. If not I can not have the dental work done. What are the terms for medical payouts?
What I also need to know is what is my best option to have the dental done that medicaid does not cover.
