    How much are the payments? Medicaid? That does not cover much. Some places do not even take it because the reimbursement is so low.

    I don’t know of any grants that provide a free ride to college. I wonder who paid for his classes? If loans were taken out, he cannot attend school until those are repaid.

    Cutting a screen wouldn't be too difficult, but getting hold of the proper tool probably took a bit.

    I keep thinking that it was the move - the packing of boxes and such - that allowed her to get hold of the phone, charger, and cutting tool. If the parents had already packed certain things, they would not notice them having gone missing.

    Dang that was a long sentence. Hope it made sense :crazy:

    Also the big one we have not discussed. Some may not think it is relevant and that's OK. But they have had God's word, they have memorized it and it is in their hearts. That has sustained many people over many years and it can lift them up beyond their circumstances too and heal their wounds.

    SBM. I totally agree. Due to job changes over the years we've been on 4 different dental insurance plans and every one of which had 100% coverage for semi-annual checkups/cleaning and the deductibles didn't apply to those. I know not all plans do this and dental coverage is always convoluted, but the companies for whom DT worked had pretty high-end coverage so I cannot imagine cost being a factor as to not taking them in for checkups.

    Idk if it's the same everywhere, but my state requires physicals for school enrollment pre-k, kindergarten, 6th, and 9th grades (yearly if they participated in school sports.) Also proof of a dental exam kindergarten, 2nd, and 6th grades. Eye exam kindergarten or first time entering school and then if recommended due to results of yearly vision/hearing screenings.

    On any plan I've been on this was a low co-pay and our vision included 100% coverage for one annual eye exam. The cost for them to have given even medical care required by schools would have been negligible; the only explanation I can see is neglect.

    Neighbors of the Turpins noticed odd behavior but never suspected that the children were being tortured.

    “Julie Olah and Sharon Ontiveros, who also live in the neighborhood, said they were devastated by the news.
    "It kills me," Ontiveros said. "It kills me."
    Despite the fact that the world is asking how the neighbors didn't see any warning signs, the residents have tried to watch each other's backs, Olah told CNN. "So, when people sit there and try to tell you that, you were monsters, they don't understand the whole situation that was going on here."
    The neighborhood has put together 13 large duffel bags with toiletries, hand-crocheted blankets, toys and "all the necessities," Ontiveros said, choking up. They hope to give the bags to the children when they're released from Child Protective Services.“

    There is a particularly nasty flu going around the Midwest and part of the South this year. I don't know if it's all over the country, but I, too, had thought about this. I hope they don't immediately encounter a serious illness.

    I don't even know if they could have their flu shots yet. It depends on their current health. And I wonder if they ever got all of their basic vaccines as kids, or if they have to start from scratch.

    A Pell Grant pays up to $5900 a yr depending on income which is sufficient for someone to go to community college. If you chose to continue on to a 4 yr school you can qualify for additional grants and scholarships based on grades and need.

    The eldest Turpin son “had excelled at his community college and had been named to the honor roll for two semesters, school officials said Thursday. The son, who is in his 20s, attended Mt. San Jacinto College for several years. His mother would bring him to school and wait outside his classes for him, prosecutors said.”

    Also members of the family attended a musical performance at the school in May 2016.
    “The small group of family members took up almost half a row of seats and they were all wearing matching outfits - blue shirts and tan pants.”

    No offense to anyone, but I think that there is a huge miscomception as to what people in poverty get as services.These adults will be in poverty. Hopefully they will be in a group home. Where I lived in MN, homes for people with cognitive issues were lovely. Some had issues because some residents were violent.

    My grandson works in a great one while he attends college.

    I am not sure what kind of education they could get that would get them a job that paid a lot. But it could happen.

    My hope is that they can make millions from book and movie rights. That way they could get the high quality of care and therapy they need.

    Tuition, books, transportation, living expenses. How far would $5900 get?

    I have three children who attended college. All students I know owe at least $30,000.

    Ditto. As much as I loathe these two I value our constitution. I don't want to live in Saudi Arabia.

    I have feeling they are not missing their parents. Somehow I think they realize how evil those two are.

    You underestimate the narcissistic confidence of a psychopath.

    Physical therapy is a covered expense. But you are correct that not every clinic accepts Medicaid patients, however some do.
