Dd hasn't had insurance in almost a year, i haven't had any for a few months. Dds dad is supposed to carry ins on her, but he got fired. I needed his cobra letter and stuff to put her on ny ins at work and he didn't give it to me in time. I had 30 days, after nagging and nagging and throwing one massive fit and finally threatening to not let him see dd, he brought me the letter one day 45, my ins wouldn't let me add her at that point. I switched jobs and now have to wait 180 days for ins. I make too much to put dd on state ins. Our state has a buy in plan, but they arent letting anyone new who isnt pregnant on right now. I've looked into private... 500$ a month with a 10,000$ deductible and doesnt cover shit. It's just so frustrating....

No insurance here. To poor to afford it but not poor enough for state insurance. We have to go to the free clinics.

Wow, we have blue cross blue shield and it's only a little over 500 a month for our family of five! The deductibles and co-pays aren't bad either.

I'm on my parents insurance for a few more years but my dh hasn't had insurance in at least 6 years now. Thankfully he just got a new job though an insurance kicks in in 60 days

My husband has his through work, but too expensive to put me on it. I have dental and vision cause its cheap. My kids all get it through the state thankfully at this point.

Same here :(
Ds has Medicaid
Dh has health insurance but not me. I pay cash for low cost services. It sucks!

We dont. We have enough in savings for doctors appointments and any medicines that we have needed but we would be screwed if something major happened.
