Well, I have a number to call and check, but DES social rep. (after a few more hours of calls this am) says that after 5am tomorrow I am back on my Health Insurance and will have SNAP re-instated!
So, one more day to "wait and see", but I'm quite hopeful at this stage.
Longer story/saga to come. Might get the press involved again this year.
Cause, there is something terribly wrong with the system when they lie, just to kick people off and HOPE they are too sick to reapply.
