  • What happens to the children on Medicaid who get it through SSI? My DD has SSI and that is the only reason she has Medicaid.

  • Myself, I have no insurance, the small family owned business that laid me off in Jan after being there for 2yrs didn't offer any insurance and all I could afford was a Catastrophic plan, and that was fine with me. I shouldn't be forced to buy insurance! I am a healthy woman and I never go to the doctor. I pay full price for my meds, and doctor visits! Luckily, I'm not trying to get pg..and when I do, my SO and I will be married and I'll be on his ins! If there is any! WOW! I can't believe the way some people think!!!

  • I am dropping my "Cadillac" plan and getting back on tri care also I am going to purchase a smaller private plan to cover what tri care doesn't. No point in getting taxed for my nice health care plan, and later being told I can not have it. I already know the inner workings of tri care so not many surprises there. I know that my doctor will change ever other day and it takes 3 days for a doctor to get back to you for advice. I know referrals can take up to 6 weeks. I know that they will wait 3 years to reimburse you if you ended up paying out of pocket but are right on your arse if you owe them money.

  • I still don't fully understand all this b.s. So for now I'm not worrying about it. I'm on a decent insurance and hope I can stay on it. Kids are on medicaid for now and I hope they're able to be on it til DH's government job starts and we can get them on his insurance (USPS employee, will be going full-time in the next year, he says that insurance is next best after medicaid, for OUR family).

  • It looks like I will be getting fined. I don't qualify for the free stuff, and can't afford to buy it.

  • I'll be keeping my present insurance, but happy for those who will be able to get insurance.

    This bill is a perfect example of "YES WE CAN"
