Wondering What (HCC) Or Maybe It’s (HHC) Means Written In () After Your Diagnosis (& No, I Don’t Have Cancer); Saw That When I Googled It

Wondering What (HCC) Or Maybe It’s (HHC) Means Written In () After Your Diagnosis (& No, I Don’t Have Cancer); Saw That When I Googled It

It’s written after my official epilepsy diagnosis on Cleveland Clinic’s MyChart. Is it just a way for neurologist to get more $ each time I’m seen? Might it help me apply for disability, or no? After not being able to work since 2017, finally thinking about applying… I’m getting worse not better, unfortunately. Thanks for any clarification!!

I have been receiving Disability for the past 5 yrs because since 2016 My seizures are not under control and I struggle at least twice a month with episodes. Because my career required a license and the permission to work with youth without the worry of going into an episode on site the YMCA had to terminate me, I do still house sit, dog sit in order to receive medical benefits from the working disabled program, in which you need to make at least $20 and my premium is the same amount. definitely a useful program,. Do not hesitate to reach out to your county or the federal government and ask them about your options, they are usually busy but once you get through they are very helpful. Try and have a good weekend. Stay smiling.

Since there is no cure, doctors throw stimulants at us like there giving us expensive candy. They’re trying to find a mixture of meds that will keep us content. If this doesn't work then they try another, then another, and so on. They get paid for trying...If it works, yippee
