We are going to get our surrogate health insurance and pay the premiums for a year. We want something she'll be able to afford after we stop paying. The law says she can't be on any assistance so I'm a little stuck as to what affordable insurance company to go with. Help? Lol

Just call BCBS, it's not welfare and it will cover maternity. the affordable care act is a series of health insurance regulations, not actual insurance.

Good question. I would think so, because it's through the government, but I don't know.

Depending on how much she makes will depend if she is entitled for assistance from ACA.  It is based on her income.  You should help her enroll and just reimburse her the premium for an agreed period of time,after which she will continue paying for it.  Together see what fits her needs and what she can afford. You can write a contract and both sign it.

We will have a contract. Here, they have to be signed by a judge, first, for surrogacy. Is it considered 'welfare' assistance? Like Medicaid?

There is only expanded Medicaid in states that implemented that part of the reform, if you are in one of those states and she qualifies it would be considered assistance. It's an income based entitlement. Blue Cross Blue Shield.
