Ok, I may be foolish, but I'll throw in again.
I just received an e-mail from Nancy-Ann DeParle? Apparently she works at the White House. I must have signed up for updates at sometime.
Anyway, she was appaulding the upcoming change in Health care.
her first paragraph stated, effective the 1st of the year, Insurance Companies will not be able to drop your coverage. Ok, great.
I have been paying COBRA for 17 months now. For coverage through United Healthcare. I have a letter that tells me, they can't continue this coverage, because my former employer didn't do something, I'll have to dig up this letter.
Anyway, the first three months of COBRA cost my family of 4, roughly 1000.00 a month, with no dental, or vision. The first of last year it shot to 1800.00. 400.00 more than my house payment. Ok, we make a switch and put the wife and girls on another plan. because I am un-insurable, I have to stay on COBRA. Now 676.00
The clause in the bill, says insurance companies can't use the pre-existing clause, on children. The adult portion kicks in on Jan. 1st 2014. Ok I can live with that.
When I was awarded S.S. disability, I was informed I wasn't eligible for medicare until Dec. 2010.............. sooo I'll hang on keep my 2 girls in College and hope for the best.
As a quote I read once says, " If you don't like the way things look, change the way you look at them"
Lets ride the horse, and see what happens hey?
