  • Nothing. It says I will get Medicaid. But, I don't believe it! I SHOULD get medicaid NOW, but every time I try, they turn me down because my ex isn't paying through child support recovery.

    Its a messed up crack in the system that I am caught in. I imagine they won't give me medicaid then either since he STILL won't be paying through CSR. (He is a crack head)

  • Oh crap! I pay about $6,000 for premiums now plus co-pays and out of pocket (this varies, but is way below 30% of the total cost). With the new system I'll be guaranteed to pay no more than $9,500 in premiums and 30% of total cost for co-pays and out of pocket. THIS SUCKS!!!

  • When it says I pay that annually, does that mean yearly or monthly?

  • We currently pay out $7,200 a year in premiums, this will cap it off at $5,700 saving us $1,500 there. We have to pay our deductible in full right now before paying copays (which is $1,200), so 30% of the cost would be less than our deductible most years.

  • Sorry, did my math wrong. It's not $7,200 a year, it's $14,400 a year. He pays $600 a check, I forgot to double that and multiply. So it will save us $8,700.
