Anybody else without insurance?

I had medicaid with my 2nd baby nearly 5yrs ago. After delivery I found out I had cancer. So 6weeks postpartum lost the medicaid and couldn't get insurance because of the cancer. Now I am still not working because of the cancer and still no insurance. You almost feel like people would rather you died because you don't have insurance. So frustrating!

  • We may be soon because there is going to be a layoff at my job and I carry insurance for the family. I hope something comes along for you soon.

  • Apply for Medicaid again. You have kids and unless you have a spouse that makes a lot of money, you will get it.

  • We too are without insurance, but unlike most, we choose not to buy it. We do everything holistically and insurance does not cover it so it is a major waste of money for us. Keep looking around, there are places you can buy it with a pre-existing condition. You might also want to contact the cancer society and see if they have any information they can pass along about insurance to cover you.
