    Do I Apply

    this is defiantly a state-by-state policy question. The best thing to do would be to go to social security.gov or your local Social Security community service administration and ask in person. You could also call 211 and see if they have any referrals to local agencies that help with navigating benefits (usually for free or sliding scale since you have cf). I think, though, that you would be able to get the veteran's equivalent of medicaid and the VA often outsources specialty diseases to normal hospitals. Best of luck!

    The Social Worker who works with your CF Clinic will be able to help or get you connected.

    Our social worker was pretty useless when we tried asking him about benefits. All he said was that there was three ways to apply. By phone, by mail or online. Useless!!
