A Texas couple who say they’ve been happily married for nine years may get a divorce in order to pay for their daughter’s rising health-care costs.
Jake and Maria Grey told NBC’s “Today” that Brighton, the older of their two daughters, has Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, a developmental disability that requires 24/7 care. They said they spend thousands of dollars annually out of pocket, even though Jake Grey has private health insurance.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We shouldn’t have to make that sacrifice to get our child Medicaid,” Grey said.
Jake Grey’s $40,000 salary is too much for the family to receive Medicaid, and Maria Grey said they are No. 60,000 on the list to receive state assistance.
“It’s drowning us to try to keep up with her medical expenses,” Jake Grey said. “We’ve done everything we can do to try to keep her afloat, and we’re going to reach a point where we can’t do it and we won’t have another option. We don’t know what to do.”
