And has anything big medical wise happen to you? Extended hospital stay? Expensive ER trip? Etc...

I being very fortunate have not. I was on my parents insurance until I started working FT at 18 with child support enforcement and then went into the insurance field with health benefits. I am now now a SAHM covered under my DHs employer.

I am without it now and have been for over a year. I had to get a $400 cap on my tooth. Other than that, nothing.

I didn't have health insurance while living in certian countries overseas, there was no need, health care was free. Here I wouldn't dream of being without it, not worth the risk.

No, never.  I lost my job once for about 6 months but I paid Cobra premiums during that time.

Yes, back when I was a teen mom and not very responsible.  I was on medicaid and didn't turn in an application to renew on time.

Been w/o it often.  I just pay what I can afford each month.  They won't refuse it.
