I am in Connecticut. I'd like to know if there are legal provisions for this situation a family frind is facing. A lady in her 70's has become a permanent resident of the United States almost a year ago. She has a medical condition that would require monthly treatment which is very expensive. Her daughter is unable to put her on her insurance and cannot afford to pay out of pocket. She has been turned away from clinics and hospitals due to the lack of insurance. Since she has never worked in the U.S., is she entitled to receive any medical asistance?
