My healthcare question: My kids do not qualify for CHIP because I make $60 to much per month. I do not qualify for a government sublimity because my employer offers insurance.
SO, in my divorce is stated that if and when the kids no longer qualify for CHIPS it is to be my ex husband that provided hearth insurance. BUT he is a deadbeat and has not paid child support nor has be seen the kids sense 2009.
SO, my question being if I opt our of health insurance - who pays the fine? Our divorce is a legal document that states he is responsible. AND the government says every American will have coverage SO, my ex should be found and be covered under some sort of heath insurance. Correct ???
I’m looking at feeding my kids or paying health insurance…
And as everyone is stating the private insurance rates will just continue to increase because of OBAMA care. My rant has nothing to do with who’s wrong or who’s right - I just want to be able to feed my kids. And not have an added fine - I’m the one stuck in the middle: I make to much money for government help but not enough to live comfortable. We do not have cable TV, We do not have trash pick-up service - those are each $70. We do not go to movies or out to eat, those would easily be $30 each outing.
No, I do not have six kids - I have two. I’ve been at my current job over 10 years. I’m not looking for a handout and proud that I do not receive them. I’m just trying to figure out how I’m going to deal with these new laws.
My kids had qualified for CHIPS up until now. I took a promotion at work and got a pay raise, which should be good, but it put us over the amount that CHIPS covers.
So, I would be better off to step back down and take the lesser paying job. I GUESS…
None of this makes any sense to me.

Next question overall
As an adoptee, how do you tell your parents that you've found your birth mom?
